Whereas Thursday was a shorter class filled with skill work, Sunday’s extended class focused on strength. For starters, everyone in class was asked to contemplate the following question while doing the warm-up: “In the Deadlift, what is the role of the: lower back; hamstrings; quads; lats; traps; glutes?”
Props to Reggie for laying out a great answer for the class, responding point by point. Post-answer, it was time to make sure you could really feel those particular muscles groups.
Strength WOD 1: single-partner Manual Glute-Ham Raises
Strenth WOD 2: 3-rep DLs with a pause & re-set between each rep (this ensured that peoples hips were in the proper position, with hamstrings under full tension and the lats pulled back for each lift, rather than sloppy second and third pulls with bouncing off the floor).
Looks like there should’ve been a tie-breaker for the Arend clan! Also, CFDC welcomed back long-time CFDCer John Frazer who has been conspicuously missing owing to a recent addition to the family; Nice to have you back John!
Times from the finisher made-it on to the board, but post the weight used for the PP to comments, as well as your final weight for the DL.
