Today, we DEADLIFT!

You probably hear your coach yelling all kinds of cues at you during this lift. “chest up!” “tight back!” “midline!” “heels!”… any of these sound familiar? The reason why your coaches are constantly cueing you through the deadlift is because this lift has the potential for you to lift A LOT of weight, and we want to make sure you do it right so that you can build strength, gain adaptation, and stay injury free. In today’s workout, you’ll be deadlifting for higher (unbroken) reps under fatigue, so understanding the mechanics of this lift will be very important!

In this video, Coach Erik Preston, member of the CrossFit Level 1 Staff and good friend to many of your coaches here at NorCal, takes a group through the deadlift. He sheds some light on the though process behind coaching the deadlift, which might help you to better understand cues, corrections, and the important things to think about for this lift.

WORKOUT FOR THURSDAY

Deadlift 15-10-5 (unbroken sets)

500m Row

Rest 2min

3 rounds
