Deficit Deadlifts


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of Rogue Fitness. Our pull motion this cycle will be the Deficit Deadlift.   Benefits of the Deficit Deadlift include Increased Leg Strength and Drive, Lower Back and Posterior Chain Strength, Greater Force Production from the bottom of the lift, a Better Set Up for regular deads, and Greater Time Under Tension (longer range of motion=longer time to do the reps).  Re-set the back and hips after EVERY rep.  Last thing I want is you pulling in a deficit position with the hips waaaayyy high and body out of position


Prior to the WOD, take some tips from Kelly Starrett (vid courtesy of Mobility WOD)

30 Snatches (135/75)

30 Snatches (165/100)

Max Snatches (210/120)

Video courtesy of The CrossFit Games. Our journey through past Opens takes us to 2012 this week. This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell loaded to the starting weight. In the Snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders. This can be a muscle snatch, a power snatch, a squat snatch or a split snatch. A clean and jerk is not permitted.


Scaling Options:

Bar weight -> As needed, as long as you increase weight every 30 reps


Cool Down:

T-Spine Roll out w/arms overhead  – 2 Min

Back roll to v-sit – 10 reps, slow and controlled
