Named workout called "Charlotte"?

Anyone have a link to what it is or who put it together?

Google is very helpful sometimes, but not with this one, as "Charlotte" also happens to be the name of a city and a CF affiliate...

CHARLOTTE

21/15/9

Overhead Squat 95lb./65lb.
Sumo Deadlift High Pull 95lb./65lb.

Post your loads and times.
According to what I can find, it was first a mainsite WOD on 24/10/10 (Yes metric system has their days and months the right way around). It was unnamed at that point. Who / Why it was given a name I don't know.

Re: Named workout called "Charlotte"?

I wonder if instead of SDHP, one could bring the hands out more and the feet in closer... in a sense reversing the grip and stance.

Only reason is a while back I almost destroyed my shoulder doing upright rows in the globo gym while trying to "target my medial delts bro"

Cheers Dave.

And yes, that whole month-day-year thing ****es me off to no end over here. I grew up with the slightly more MAKES SENSE day-month-year or even the reverse, then did 10 years in a military that uses 07JUN2011. Ugh.

Lots of people sub power cleans for that reason. SDHP's are notorious shoulder wreckers.

wouldn't just a clean high pull be a closer sub?

Maybe, but with a power clean you know your getting it. i.e. there's a definite ending point when your standing with the weight in the rack position.

With a clean high pull you might just be turning it into a shrug by the time it was over.

Also that's not the kind of movement I would want to do for high reps. But that's just me.

Yes, except that the SDHP destroys your shoulders.

*edit, oh you mean that it has no specific ending point.

Well in a way except that they usually defined that end point, say above your clavicle.

What would be the right point for a clean pull? Normally it's used to pull to whatever height you can. If it's a heavy weight that wouldn't be very high (which is fine). And mostly you should be using a heavy weight to do them as they an overload exercise or when light should be a technique exercise. And whether or not technical olympic lifting assistance exercises should be done for high reps is still debatable.

Ah, got it.. but what if you just said you were doing a sdhp but modifying the grip and stance? lol.
