Daily WOD – Aug 9, 2011


Deadlift 1-1-1-1-1-1-1


Complete 3 rounds for time of:

  • 45 ft walking lunge
  • 15 air squats
  • 45 ft broad jumps
  • 15 air squats

WOD Notes: Today we will find your 1 rep max deadlift, so we have a good record of where you started during your first month at Iron Cross Athletics. This does not have to be an all-out back killer! We just need a “working” 1 rep max – meaning a weight that comes up pretty readily, with your form staying nice and tight. You have 7 attempts to find your 1 rep max.

Community Notes: Do you track your Daily WOD results in a notebook or journal? If not, you should! One of the great things about CrossFit is that your workouts are measurable, recordable, and comparable. We do this on purpose – so you can track your progress over time. Maybe today your 1 rep max deadlift is 120#. But in three months you might pull a 140#. And in a year you might lock out with 200#. By keeping a journal of your results you’ll have undeniable proof that every day you’re getting stronger, faster, and fitter.
