Coaching Notes: Lets do some dead-lifting. Once again there is not time companant to today's WOD. I want each lift to be indvidual and technical. I want you to get a stiff and proper set-up.

Bar to the shins, shoulders over or slighltly in front of the bar, hands thumb space away from thighs, big chest, tight and arched lumbar curve, lungs filled, abs engaged, lift do not jerk, keep bar in contact with the body at all times, stand all the way up and pull shoulders back, delay the knee bend until bar clears pattellas, keep back chest and abs engaged during decent.

You rest when your teamates are lifting, the bar should not sit still longer than :15 seconds between lifters. Form, form and more form, if you back is bowing then the weight is to heavy, switch to a lower station.

Coaching Notes: I received several e-mails from folks discussing the questionable ROM during CFT. I blame myself most of all for the lax ROM that has been clearly evident lately. I have been injured for a long time and have felt sorry for myself and others. I preach that technique trumps weight but lately I have used and let the excuse "I cant get that low" fly way to much. Well this stops today and from now on.

 Today's WOD is all about form and proper ROM. Critique each other, there are four bars set up so if your ROM sucks then obviously the weight it too heavy and you need to switch stations.

The excuse I can't do get deeper falls on deaf ears, we can we just refuse to try. So lets leave our excuses at home and come in and learn how to fix the problem. Some of us choose to become deaf during WODs, well today there is no clock and there wont be until the ROM, Technique and Form return to the level that is acceptable for all of us.

Today we start over and we go back to basics, today we pay attention to what matters and it isn't the clock. Today and from here on out we pay attention to the Coaching, the Range of Motion and theTechnique we use when lifting loads. Today we learn how to prevent injury and how to get stronger in an educated and scientific way. Today we lift with quality and integrity.

If your teammate isn't going low enough then call them out, pull out the integrity ball and use it. If you get called out then don't get pissy and butt hurt. Listen to the critique and accept the judgment. If you cant get deep with the weight provided then switch to a lower station, if you cant lift any of the weights properly then grab a training bar, a med ball or a broomstick and get your butt on the floor. If you cant lift it properly then ask for help and find a weight that you can lift properly.

 If you injured then you shouldn't be lifting you should be re-habbing so go over the the box and start your box pistols and step downs. Do your one legged balance and stability drills. Get better so you can get deeper.

Use the following table for today's WOD, you rest when your teammate's are lifting an no longer. The bar should not stop moving more than :30 seconds to change lifters.

315 or greater uses 225 bar…..225 <  use 135 bar…..135 < use 95 bar….95 < use 65 bar.
