Wednesday 130410 Regionals 2011 WOD
Here is a test from a few years back... This WOD will test brute strength with a very heavy deadlift (see scaling info below) and power extended over time with lots of high box jumps. We will begin with some sets of RDLs to prepare and set the back. Warming up deadlifts requires not just getting the body physically warm- but also prepared and charged up from a neurological perspective. The RDLs and then working up gradually with weight "greases the groove"- gets the body firing as a unified system to lift heavy for repeated reps. Yes- dropping from the top is fine... but make sure you get tension on the bar before peeling weight from the ground. Really get set, put some stretch in the bar, and drive the heels throught floor.
