Friday 111118 Deadlifts on the Minute

I know I have blogged about Manny before... but here I go again anyway.  Think about this; Manny goes out there and puts in 8-10 hours of full-on labor, he gets to the Yard at 5:20am and THEN comes into the Hut and hits it hard at 4 or 5pm.  Sometimes if he has no work, he makes the 40 minute drive JUST to workout with YOU at 6am.  Pictured below is Manny with the shovel he uses ALL day EVERY day.  It weighs roughly 10 pounds and he fabricated it himself out of rebar and an old shovel head.  He stands in this exact position for hours at a time and scrapes the earth from a huge auger (think massive drill bit that cores out dirt and rock up to 60 feet deep).  He doesn't wear gloves because it decreases grip strength.  Works all day and then comes into the Hut and works hard... AND communicating in a second language! BAMF.  Now get in here and make Manny proud.
Quien es mas macho?  Manny... por supuesto!

Friday's WOD; class times at 7, 9, 10am and 3 and 5pm.
Resting exactly 60 seconds between sets:
Deadlift 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2
Add 8 heaviest lifts for total volume...
i.e: 2 'mulligans' allowed- so 2 lowest lifts or missed attempts do not count towards totals.
Post total volume lifted to Chalkboards.
