oh yeah feeling a little of that filthy fifty fun! That's a tough wod. it starts with box jumps and then by the time you get to knees to elbows its getting ugly. Also having the back end of the wod stacked with wall balls, double unders, and burpees makes it a challenge.

Deadlift
95 x 5
105 x 5
115 x 3
125 x 3
135 x 1
145 x 1
145 x 1
145 x 1

Meh...
They wanted to establish mine and another co-worker's 1RM or at least close to it. We didn't plan very well and didn't add enough weight between sets. So towards the end, he said just do 145 a few more times and get a good feel of the proper form. Next time these numbers will be better.

Food:
2 bananas
primal strip (lime mesquite seitan)
sbux ice green tea
approx 1/2 cup TJ's Go Raw Trail mix
quinoa, tempeh, brussel sprouts, red peppers, onions, caraway, bragg's liquid aminos
some roasted pumpkin seeds and dried blueberries (i didn't feel like shelling the seeds, i hope its ok to eat the shell)
guava raw kombucha (synergy)
some lentil soup that me ma made me for when my wife was out of town over the weekend
dark chocolate covered espresso beans
TJ's pomegranate green tea
apple & sage field roast sausages, squash, zucchini, mushrooms & garlic
red wine

Yeah your 1 rep max deadlift is probably a lot higher than that. Your just starting though you will get it all sorta out soon enough.

I like it, but I don't think I'm doing that well. I know I'm just starting, and this is an entirely different way than I've ever trained before. I'm so paranoid about lifting injuries, based on my history, I think I psyche myself out with trying to get this perfect form going on, and the actual lift suffers in proficiency as a result. I know there's a learning stage and whatnot, but I've always had way more heart than common sense, so it's frustrating not being able to "get it done".

hang in there rob! Im sure your doing fine. Getting the right form is so important that it is important to take the time and learn the skill. Eventually it will pay off when your throwing crazy heavy weights around and not getting injured from it. It will take you less time to learn good form than recover from an injury.Ask the trainers any questions you have and they will help you out a ton. better form will mean more weight in the end. You can't cheat the system.

Yeah it was okay. It didn't seem particularly difficult, especially compared to some of the other ones I've done. The rowing didn't really fatigue me much. Maybe I didn't push myself as hard as I could have, but it really didn't seem like I could go any faster than I was.
