After a quick warm-up (I did a bunch of dumbbell snatches to knock off another Level One testing requirement), we practiced doing single leg deadlifts. I figured I could just cut my normal deadlift weight in half and crank out a bunch of these babies. Sounds logical, right?
Not so much.
Doing deadlifts on one leg challenges not just your strength, but your balance as well. (Duh.) I ended up lifting only about 115 pounds, which is kind of embarrassing. (I kid you not: The 105-pound girl next to me pulled more weight than me.)
I tried to make up for my suckage during the metcon. On today's menu:
3 rounds for time:
- 15 Hanging Knees-to-Elbows
- 15 Handstand Push-Ups
- 20 Kettlebell Snatches
