(3 rounds of 3 Reps max weight deadlift)
Immediately after complete the following WOD.
3 Rounds for time of:
10 Deadlifts (225#/135#)
Deadlift practice was good today. Everyone did their best angry gorilla interpretation (a cue that we borrowed from Kurtis at Rainier CF) at the set up to force staying on the heels, driving the knees back, and setting the back angle prior to the pull off the floor.
Double-Under practice was a nice exercise in frustration for many. Keep at it and focus on alternating with those singles and that speed and coordination will improve. In the two pictures below, Sherry is doing double-unders. Jeremy is doing single-unders. Note their jumps are the same, and both their wrists should both be lower and closer to the hips (to reduce catching the feet), but the difference between the two is the wrist speed to pass the rope under the feet twice.
Grace results are final. Our winners are Jim and Jorge who split the pot! Both had the largest improvement in two categories. Jim was the only person in the competition who in the re-test completed Grace as RX’d. He also did it in a faster time than his first attempt with 20 less pounds. His RX’d time was a very impressive 4:27. Jorge had the largest overall time improvement from his initial go to his retest. He halved his first time in the re-test. Any disputes need to be brought to the attention of the “Sorry About Your Luck Panel”.
