Can someone post a link to the exercise? I'm pretty sure I know how to do it but would like a picture or video. Also, what's the average time for 'Helen'.

Platform is there to increase ROM but not needed for those unaccustomed to snatch grip deadlift to begin with.

The Crossfit North Skill Standards sheet has Helen at 11:30 to achieve level II out of IV. I would say it's hard to find an "average."

Allen: The workout went great. I pictured the phots you sent in my mind and had no problems. Then again, I was only deadlifting 55# for the workout. That's all I need right now. I'm more into the skills and technique that the exercises require anyway.

Glad to know that it helped, I recently tried that exercise last year and found it to be very hard on my grip compared to conventional deadlift.

Would the benefit of this lift over the deadlift be to help grip strength? Just wondering because my grip strength is a weaker area for me.

Just the opposite: Snatch grip somewhat reduces your ability to lift heavy so your grip doesn't get as much juice.
