Houston, we have lift off. Good people of the blogosphere, I’m pleased to report that I have been officially inducted into the two-hundred dead lift club! Yipeeeee!
Here’s the set-up from this morning’s class:
- Deadlift 15 (103#)-10 (133#)-5 (173#)-1 (193#) – 1 (203#)
- 20 sit-up
- 20 Double under
- Amrap 5min
- * Scale DU to 20 air squats
I was paired with two dead lift ninjas who make me feel like a 80 year old woman during this lift, but hey, if that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is…
What to see it in action? Here’s a video of my mini glory – please ignore my poor form. As you’ll note the video catches my lift a couple seconds into the movement so you miss my clean set-up, and instead see my slightly arched back. Ugh, practice makes perfect, right?
I’m so pumped. I’ve been eyeing this PR for a while and I definitely feel redeemed after my last PR notch.
Obviously, with every new CrossFit milestone, I want to celebrate the best way I know how – beats. I’ve started a mini-trend on Facebook. If someone from our box posts about a PR, they need to accompany it with his or her “PR song”, a beat that exemplifies the feeling they have after hitting their goal.
For whatever reason, I felt gansta after that lift and this song instantly popped in my head:
Hit a PR recently? What would be your PR song??
