15 min to establish 5RM deadlift

Post highest successful 5 rep  weight to comments/


Picture courtesy of CrossFit Mildenhall.  When you deadlift, which form is more like yours?  If you are more like the one on the left, don’t fret.  We will help correct this during movement prep.  Fix your form=you get stronger=you get more fit=you live longer, better = you’re welcome.

10 min to complete strict weighted chin ups 3×5

Goal is to use the same weight for all 3 sets, so use the warm up to find a good weight to use

For the rep to count, have arms fully extended at the bottom, at get chin above the bar at the top.  A slight bit of body english is allowe.  But do NOT kip these.  Go strict.
