Deadlift 3 Rep Max Challenge
My nifty android crossfit WOD tracking app, www.flxfwd.com, has scheduled workouts and challenges in which you can compare your stats with others – friendly competition. I couldn’t make it to my crossfit box tonight so I thought I’d log this deadlift challenge of 5 attempts for 3 max reps. Sounded too scrumptious to pass up!
1st attempt x 3 – 135 #
2nd attempt x 3 – 155 #
3rd attempt x 3 – 185 #
4th attempt x 3 – 205 #
5th attempt x 3 – 225 # (lost form on the last rep – that’s a no-no.)
And one more rep (with good form) at 225 # to prove to my ego that 225 # was all I had!
I went back in my diary to January 19, 2011 to find my previous PR at 1 x 250. Here’s the video.(Needed to get closer to my body with this lift.)
Losing 25 lbs off my max lift after 6 months of resting isn’t too bad. I’ll take it with a smile.
And for the record, the max lift by females on the flxfwd.com site was 290! That’s for 3 reps! Here’s how her 5 sets went, 215-245-265-280-290. That totally rocks!
