Re: Deadlift Challenge

A lot of these extreme physical events are all about ego for me.

Not ego in a way that I become an arrogant SOB, but because I know, without telling other people that I can do 'this.'

By itself, weightlifting, CF, strength training....can build a sense of confidence.

If you can control it properly, as like I said, not let it turn you into an arrogant SOB....it can help you succeed at many different aspects in life.

I know the past 2 years, and all the goals I set, and the goals I accomplished.....it has improved everything away from the gym as well.

Not to bad. My back and legs were fine the next day, my fore armes and traps, back in between my shoulder blades, shoulders were real sore, but not in a bad way. Just real sore. That was friday, Did the 30 MU for time WOD, I ran out os steam at rep 16 or so, Really felt the deads then.
Sat. butt and hams got sore, but not that bad really.

I really watched my form on it. I really almost over exagerated my form during the workout. I mean by keeping my back straight and butt not coming up first on the pull. butt coming down almost first on he return to the ground. If I got to where I was straining to the point of forgetting form, I would stop, but at that point it was almost always grip. I did the reps in 10 till 40, then grip went, I did 6 reps, then the 4, then 5reps at a time to finish.
No bounce.

Re: Deadlift Challenge

I did 150 reps in 22:30 today. I overestimated my staying power with 225. My lower back was so pumped with blood I could hardly even get into postion towards the end. I could have made 200 by 30 minutes most likely but it would have been with 3 or 4 at a time.

Good luck to anyone else giving this a go.

Re: Deadlift Challenge

Wow, some interesting replies.

Be sure and post it up when you complete this. I'm curious how long it will take you!

Also, like someone earlier said, why not try it a little heavier? That video of double bodyweight for 15 reps was pretty cool awhile back.
