Congratulations to the Class of 2016 on being accepted into the Corps of Cadets!  Job well done!

Arrive, set-up, & start personal warm-up (5 minutes) - Equipment needed: 1 x barbell for every two people;

Teaching & Warm-up (10 minutes) - discuss basics of the deadlift and then everyone practices
Demo (Matt)
Deadlift points of performance (Adam)

WOD (starts NLT 0555)

The intent of today's WOD is to do higher volume, lower weight deadlifts in order to ensure all our new athletes have the proper form prior to working towards a personal record on a 1 rep max.


Compare to: 28 NOV 2011

NOTE:  There is NO time component to this WOD.  Focus on proper form and rest as needed between each set.  Work with a partner in order to reduce the amount of bars and weights needed.
NOTE2:  Here is a pretty good video series by Mark Rippletoe on proper deadlift technique.  Check it out if you have time - Deadlift video series 

Post loads to comments.

It is good to do high volume heavy every once in a while.

So I'm working out a local, crappy, gym. The oly bars are about twice the diameter of a normal (i.e.: good) bar. That's slightly exaggerated, but they are considerably bigger. I don't even know where - or why - you would buy bars like this. They are no good - particularly for lifting anything off the ground.

Anyway...for today's WOD:
