Congratulations, Susan. Nice job.

"Loads unknown"? Care to elaborate?

Evan said...

Seeing as how it is Halloween, and that the "Unknown" can be scary & spooky, we thought we would put together a ladder, in which athletes did not know how much was on the bar.

Each round, Simply record the station that you achieved your heaviest lift (you will know). Stations are labeled 1-6.

Your coach will reveal the secret loads to you after the WOD.

Michael said...

Fascinating! And mysterious!

Jay said...

Can't believe I have to miss a deadlift. (Cat to vet @ 5, yard decorated like a graveyard - kids wouldn't forgive me if I was gone).
Doesn't sound like something I should do with a bum arm. Next time!! Good luck to all!

Thanks for your patience this morning with getting everything set up. Great job.

Sujata said...

Thank you Teresa for guiding us through the ladder. I'm both happy and annoyed with my result - didn't think I would get that close to my PR but very annoyed that I was nearly at my PR and did not make it! Definitely a fun way to do Deadlifts!

This looks fun, I have been wanting to do a "Blind" or unknown heavy deadlift for awhile. Should be interesting to see if I get a PR.

Got a total of 104 for the nutrition challenge this week. I had cheat meals of Chipotle's and pizza. Next week I am going to try to go with only one cheat meal but you can bet it will be a good one. :)

Great job hitting 225 Mandi! I have some major catch to do!!

Josh said...

What was the heaviest load for round 3?

Evan said...

Bar 6 Men's ladder was 290.

Josh said...

Thanks Evan, that's what I thought. 290 was my heaviest lift then.

Evan said...

Congratulations, Josh!

Great lifting
