Final time hitting our banded deadlifts before we re-test our 5X5.  Today, looking to build up t a heavy single.  Nothing overly crazy, just a start with a heavy set of 5, move up a little in the weight, and hit a set of 4, move up, hit a set of 3, move up, hit a heavy double, then move up a little more and finish with a heavy single for the day.


12 Min AMRAP:

20-sec Hanging L-Sit Hold

15 Dual DB Burpee to Deadlift (50/35)

10 Handstand Push Ups

Videos courtesy of CrossFit HQ and Train FTW, respectively.  Quick demos for the HAnging L-Sit Hold and the Dual DB Burpee Deadlifts.

Earlier we put a good stress on our posterior chain.  We’re going to compliment that and also put some focus on the mid-line as well.  In the Hanging L-Sit hold, we need to focus on keeping a good hollow position on our core and really fire those legs to stay stable.  The Dual DB Burpee Deadlift is surprisingly taxing on both the posterior chain and your lungs.  Sprinting through those reps wouldn’t benefit you that much in this AMRAP.  Stay steady throughout.

Scaling Options:

L-Hang -> Hanging Knee Tuck Hold
