5 Rounds for time of
255lb Deadlifts 5 reps
And the result...a beautiful CrossFit angel only Pukey could love:
Even Tilda looked whooped:
I really wanted to do this WOD as Rx'd. As Rx'd was 275lbs for the Deadlift. Last time I maxed (2 months ago on 5-5-08) I was at 305 lbs for my PR. So 275 would have been 90% of my max 25 times and I'd be out of breath from the burpees. Too tough for this cop. A tougher man then me once said that a man has to know his limitations. So I scaled it back to 255lbs which is 83% of my max. Still a lot of work. Those deadlifts were super tough, and I know I made the right decision to scale it back. What a good workout. I really enjoyed this one. Really paid close attention to my form on the deadlifts cause I didn't want to get sloppy and round my back at all. I was able to keep good form and kept strict form for all the exercises performed and was watched/judged closely by my brother Jake. He held me to the strict crossfit games standards. Great workout.
