Strength: 20 Minutes to establish a 1RM Deadlift.
Notes: At CrossFit Merced we do NOT do deadlifts to see how much you can pick up. We do deadlifts to test your ability to maintain a stable midline while loading your skeletal system. In order to be consistent with this agenda, we insist that every deadlift be performed with a properly stable and rigid midline. For the purposes of our recording, any deviation from a stable midline will result in a no-rep. If you haven’t read it yet, this is our unofficial stance on deadlifts.
In short: Lift heavy, but lift perfectly.
