I love this blog post by Miranda Oldroyd. Miranda was in a car accident and discusses how CrossFit literally saved her life. It's long so I can't post it here but take some time to read it. CrossFit is Dangerous??? And How It Very Literally Saved My Life.

Strength: Shoulder Press 2x2x2x2x2+ (75, 80, 85, 87.5, 90%)
WOD: This WOD is from the 2008 CrossFit Games. FYI the best times at the 2008 Games were men: 2:33 and women 3:23.
5 Deadlifts (275/185)
Remember the coaching cues during the deadlift:
Push your hips back
Weight is in your heels
Pull the chest tall
Stiffen the upper back
Tuck the Chin
Open the hips up all the way at the top
Go Fast!!!! Keep the weight at a moderate load that is safe but still challenging.
One great example on how to NOT deadlift.
One video on how to not give up during the deadlift.....if you get to this point, please stop (This is a little gross, view at your own risk)
