Trevor decided to challenge us a little today.
5 rounds of:
12 Deadlifts, 155 lbs
9 Hang Power Cleans, 155 lbs
6 Push Jerks, 155 lbs
21-15-9 reps of:
Overhead Squat, 95 lbs
I love the RRL for so many reasons, but one of the main ones is that no one complains...they just do the work, we all do. Trevor put 2 Hero workouts on the board and everyone did them...both.
DT is my nemesis. I find it increasingly harder every time. I started with 155 but dropped to 135 because I felt a slight twinge in my lower back. I still finished in 11:35 today. Trevor was much faster with the full 155 lbs, but still not as fast as Ben Smith in this year's CrossFit Games.
The athletes did a Heavy DT which is the same workout as we did, but with 205 lbs rather than 155. Ben Smith finished in 7:55 beating the entire field. Matt Fraser, an olympic weightlifter, finished 8:35 and was the closest to Smith.
If you ever want to see, first hand, how impressive the CrossFit Games athletes really are, simply try DT in your driveway. I think I would have to go to 95 lbs to be able to finish this workout in the 7:55 time that Ben Smith finished with 205 lbs. This is one of the most incredible performances I have seen in the Games. Good job Ben Smith, congratulations Champ.
