Rippin’ 455 Pounds

My shoulders are kind of fried from the last couple of days, so no shoulder lifts today. Went in and watched a few people redo 13.5 around 1pm and then worked out.


  • 500m Row


1RM Deadlift

  • 10 @ 135#
  • 5 @ 225#
  • 3 @ 315#
  • 2 @ 405#
  • 1 @ 435# (PR)
  • 1 @ 455# (PR)
  • F @ 465#

My warm-up lifts weren’t exactly feeling that great, so I was worried I’d bomb on a PR. But then 435# went up pretty easy so I took the jump to 455#. I wouldn’t say it was anything close to easy, but overall it was a pretty smooth lift for a big PR. So like a dumbass I had to add 10 more pounds and give 465# a try. It wasn’t moving off the ground and I quickly bailed. It’s not like me to even try that after already setting a 30# PR.

Kevin, Michelle, and I then did a conditioning WOD. I have a duathlon next weekend so figure I should probably get in a little running and the Air Dyne will help out my biking.


  • 600m Run
  • 750m Row
  • 21 cal Air Dyne
  • 400m Run
  • 500m Row
  • 15 cal Air Dyne
  • 200m Run
  • 250m Row
  • 9 cal Air Dyne

Judging by some similar WODs out in Phoenix I figured this would take 15-18 minutes, so it just goes to show how wrong some of our running distances were out there. I finished in 13:57. The Air Dyne seems to be getting easier each time I use it.
