Re: Deadlift, touch and go?

I hurt myself during a high-rep box jump and deadlift work out. It's been 3 weeks and it still hasn't healed yet. Very annoying.
So, what happened is this:
I missed a box-jump and scrapped my shin pretty good. Then, whilst doing the deadlifts, on the way down I banged that same spot that I scrapped. Let me tell you, that hurt like nothing else - I had to stop and let loose dome fine lingo and shake off the pain. Sheesh, still cringe when I think of it. It was bleeding and swelled up and everything - so I just pulled my sock back over then wound, manned up, and finished the wod. I know I know working through the pain isn't a good idea, but hey, I got to yell time as loud as I could once done and everyone said that was awesome.
That was 3 weeks ago - the blood flow to the shin isn't very good so it's taking a while to heal .... but I also keep knocking it here and there as I continue to workout on my injury, and prevent it from healing.

BTW: Yes, I wiped my DNA off the barbell once finished.

No, I am just reaching my breaking point with arguing about CrossFit related issues.

Agree about the petty arguing. See above. You're right Olympic lifts require no skill

Re: Deadlift, touch and go?

Deadlift, 5RM on CFFB programming.

I always assumed a 5RM simply meant hands never leave the bar until the 5 reps are completed with proper form and in a fairly consistent manner. In this case, it would not matter if the lift was performed touch/go or with a quick breath between each rep as long as hands maintained contact with the bar and the each rep was consecutive. After reading this thread, I am not so sure.

Does anyone have a definitive answer (not opinion) on this? If not, I may email John Welbourn about it on TTMJ. All of the people in this thread seem to have lots of different ideas about what is right and wrong.

This^^.

Momentum of the bar should be zero at the start of each lift. This is all you need to achieve between reps.

If by 'touch and go' people are bouncing out of the bottom, they're not deadlifting. With experience, it will take less time to reset for each rep (releasing bar momentum, breath, taking up slack in elbows, setting grip and feet) to the point where a trained individual will look like they're touch-and-going, but they're still DEADlifting.

Regardless, if you're performing a set for reps then your hands don't leave the bar.

That's the general standard I've seen from Rip, JP, Wendler, and a few others. A breath or two between reps is fine, but taking a 15 second breather is cheating things a bit.

Re: Deadlift, touch and go?

For olympic lifts, I'll reset my feet and grip between reps. But for deads, the set is over if the hands leave the bar.
