Workout of the Day
Deadlift 8×1 (90%)
Complete in any order:
- 3×10 banded deadlifts (~50% 1RM deadlift)
- 30 dead bugs
WOD Notes: The deadlifts today should all be performed at the same weight. We’ll be testing a new 1 rep max in September and this is a chance to feel heavy weight and fine tune form. The banded deadlifts should be with a band that allows you to move the bar quickly but feel significant added resistance at the top of the lift. This is a general guide based on your 1RM deadlift:
- Green band = 400#+
- Purple band = 250#-400#
- Black = 150#-250#
- Red = < 150#
200 Burpees Note: This Saturday is our annual “200 burpees for time” WOD. If you’ve never done this workout, you are in for a treat! It’s a true test of grit and a workout our athletes love to hate. 😂 Less enthusiastic burpee-ers can complete 100 (beginner) or 150 (intermediate) burpees. We have a 25 minute time cap, though most athletes finish under 20 minutes and our fastest are under 15! This year we have extra encouragement to participate: We are donating 1 cent to 31Heroes for every burpee completed (and logged to SugarWOD) on 8/29. Due to the weather forecast we are holding classes inside.
