I don't have any wisdom to espouse today, so if you came here for that, I apologize. If you came to see what I did in the gym today, here it is:
CrossFit: Deadlifts 3-3-3-3-3 (that's 5 sets of 3 reps for maximum weight)
CF Warm-up x 2
Deadlift Warm-ups: 5 @ 135#, 5 @ 135#, 5 @ 155#
Deadlifts: 3 @ 185#, 3 @ 205#, 3 @ 205#, 3 @ 215#, 3 @ 225#
Form is crucial, otherwise you will end up with major back problems. However, deadlifts will work your back too. I am not certain that I have the best form, but will continue to practice it. I need a video camera. That way you all can give me pointers. Oh, and I guess I can use it to capture awesome family moments too!
