W.O.D…. April 21, 2009

WOD for April 22, 2009




Deadlift Max

1 – 1 – 1 – 1 – 1- 1

Warm-up with lighter weight before you start your single rep max.  Start off with a heavy load that you know you can pull.  Take a breather but don't get cold before attempting your next pull.  Every rep should feel as if you're pulling the world. 

Post your one rep max to comments.  Top 5 will go on "Leader Board".

    So I wont make it to crossfit today cause i have no1 to watch my kid, and suddenly i realized that I AM ADDICTED TO CROSSFIT!! LOL Anyways, t-shirt idea…..
    Crossfit…. The healthiest addiction you will ever have!!

  • Mike

    Wiwi, thats pretty clever. Jessy, we will miss you too.

  • Alexandra

    If it doesn’t hurt, it isn’t CrossFit.

  • Hector

    Bit long but shirt idea…
    ‘Cause sometimes you feel tired,
    feel weak, and when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up.
    But you gotta search within you, you gotta find that inner strength
    and just pull that shit out of you and get that motivation to not give up
    and not be a quitter, no matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse.
    I am crossfit…Miami

  • Marilyn

    Thanks for cheering me on, although everyone missed it once you guys turned around .. I went down & arggggggh managed to get up with an alternative grip (175)!!
    I think I have found a secret crush .. Deadlifts!! (Never thought I would actually say I enjoy doing deadlifts) I was literally driving home & felt good, felt like driving back & doing some more!

  • Sean Barrios

    345 not great, but not bad for an old man with a bad back. Andre thanks for all the coaching, I couldn’t have done it with out you.

  • OG

    220… Thanks Jessy, Peter and Danny for the encouragement I couldn’t have done it without you guys…

  • Derek “D2” Diaz

  • Yesterday’s work out was great!!! I would have never even think about lifting 345…I did it. Thanks to the support of my cross fitters partners and trainers…Thank you guys.

  • OG

    Wow Mike extremely impressed with your 500 club scores!!! Amazing job!!!

  • Leslie

    I am 5’2″ and I lifted 200lbs. I came out a MONSTER. Thank you Andre. Nick thanks for shouting out HIPS. I couldn’t have done it without your help.
    CONGRATS to everyone else. Great job!

  • Pancho

    We will either find a way or make one…
    Crossfit Miami

  • 195…Never done a Deadlift in my life! I was able to press this when I used to go to LA Fitness… LOL… Thank you ED for pushing me, couldnt have done it w/o YOU kicking my a$$!
    Marilyn.. You f’ing rocked it!

  • Marilyn

    Get it girl, thats awesome!!
    & Yes, it had to have came out atleast in the surveillance camera, but I did it!! 🙂

  • TICO

    Mike, 510 is sick! Good shit brother! Now give me a shirt!

  • Mike

    I had a great time watching you guys get hype and pull. It’s an awesome thing to see how CrossFit has turned some of you into workout junkies. Think about your friends and co-workers and thier stale routines, that’s if they even train. When I read comments like Panchos or get texts fron JC, I could only think of “Fight Club”, when Ed Norton can’t wait to get out of work to go get his ass kicked. So say hello to your alter ego (i want you to think of a name for him/her), enjoy the excitement of CF and remember the 3 rules of “Fight Club”…. then forget them and tell EVERYBODY!

  • dre and nick thanks but ill get mike next time….lol

  • Amarys

    And why is my name not up?
    I pulled 195 and pulled my back and still no name.
    At least a t-shirt!!! lol
    Where’s the love MIke?

  • Mike

    Amarys, I beleive you and Marlyn wrote your loads on a different board and they got erased. I apoligize. Congrats on making the 150CLUB. And you know I got much love for you and my nemesis.

  • Jessica Calvino

    Never maxed out on deadlifts before and had a top pull of 285! Thanks so much to all the trainers for your help u guys are awesome!
    Jessica C.

  • Cecilia

    Uuh… Mike? Forgetting something? That’s it… there’s an ass that’s gonna get kicked! >:-(
    Ok… t-shirt idea:
    “ATTENTION: If you feel weak, faint, nausea, shortness of breath, or have any pain while exercising, WELCOME TO CROSSFIT!”

  • Mike

    ATTENTION, ATTENTION: I Mike Osuna made a mistake. Cecilia, our badass Metro-Dade Firefighter maxed out at 275. Great pull Ceci.

  • Cecilia

    No!! I maxed out at 245lbs! Ay Dios mio Mike… 275 is for a later date.
