Deadlift

“The deadlift, being no more than picking a thing off the ground, keeps company with standing, running, jumping, and throwing for functionality but imparts quick and prominent athletic advantage like no other exercise.”  – Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit

Part. A Deadlift (20minutes)

Find your 1 rep max (1RM)

1-1-1-1-1-1-1

Start 7 attempts from 65% of your 1RM. If you never done this before, start from 65/55. Warm up with light weight before your attempt. (for 5 minutes, I will run the clock for 15mins at 5:00 min). Increase the weight every attempt. Give yourself 60-90 second break between attempt.

Part. B AMRAP 7

3-6-9-12-15-18-21-24…

deadlift 95/55/135

Box Jump 24/20/30

Jumping Pullup/pull up

1 minute rest

Part. C 3minute sit up challenge

See if you can do 100, if you finish 100, go for more.

Hello everyone, I am very excited to start CF Juke Joint here in Grand Junction! Here is the first WOD in the history. Of course we are starting with SQUAT. Squat is one of the most important functional movements.

Check out SQUAT HISTORY —> Click this link

Part. A. Back Squat for five sets each at ten reps: 95/55 (scale down to 45/35  or PVC if you are new to  squat) Our purpose today is to feel the low back tension at the bottom and keep the tension for the entire movement. If you are an Elite level athlete, 135/95 and take 90 second break between each round.

1st Super-slow, 20 seconds round trip

30 second break

2nd Bottom-to-bottom (rest at bottom, no stop at top)

30 second break

3rd Ten second pause at bottom of each rep

30 second break

4th Eyes closed (better use spotter or you’ll die)

30 second break

5th Ease down, EXPLODE-UP!!!

“Explosive hip extension is necessary, and damned near sufficient, for elite athleticism.”
– Coach Glassman

Part B. Tabata

  • Push up
  • Sit up
  • Ring row
  • Hollow rock
