Warrior Mini Challenge #2: Tons of Deadlifts

Recommended Posts

I might have a go at this. Starting a deload week soon, which sometimes turns into a "Ha ha just kidding let's beat the shit out of myself" week, so why not?

 

Strategery for me would probably be 3 sets of 11 @ 185lbs, resting til 1:30 after the first set and til 3:30 after the second. Nice leisurely pace on the last set.

I just did mine. Here are my numbers, times are approximate.

 

135#

Sets: 13, 10, 10, 8, 6, 5

 

Beginner goal: 30reps, 4050# @ ~3:00

Advanced goal: 45 reps, 6075# @ ~4:30

 

Personal goal: 50 reps

Total reps: 52

Total weight: 7020# or 3.51 tons

 

A couple factors:

I decided to do 135# for high reps after a couple of warmup sets. Since i haven't pulled in a while i figured this was smarter.

 

This was fasted... First thing in the morning.

 

My plates are about an inch shorter in diameter than Oly, so I'm pulling from a deficit.

 

I did this at home and was trying to be nice to the neighbors below in case they were home. Might have moved a little faster at the gym.

 

I'm waiting for the vid to upload. Will post later.

 

I might try a heavier weight next weekend to see if i can improve my time and/or total.

Plan: 

 

EMOM

135# x 6-9 reps

 

6 reps per minute gets beginner; 9 reps per minute gets advanced. I'll probably do a couple warmup sets at 95# too.  

Solid plan, looks pragmatic for protecting your spine while still literally moving tons of weight.

Ok, I'm in.  I think my first attempt at this I will borrow @Curl Brogo's plan.

Of course, since this is a competition...  I'll have to best his times and reps.  

Image result for oh, no he didn't

BTW the weight on the bar doesn't have to be fixed for all sets, right?

If you want to take the time out of your 5 minutes to change plates you can.

 

The goal is to keep it the same throughout though :)

Deload week is always such a sham.

 

For me it looks like: Let's do some conditioning and get your ass kicked, mmk?

and coaches are sadistic

 

Tell me about it..... :panda:

 

Next week is a deload week between blocks, so I can make this work!  I can do one of two things:

 

1. See how fast I can hit this 6000 pound volume.

2. See how much volume I can hit in five minutes.

 

The first one is easier logistically, because all I need is to tape myself.  The second one requires a timer.  If I get my trainer to play, then I get somebody to time me five minutes and yell at me and help me with a strategy.  (given that I have very little crossfit experience)

If we do this with just the bar, does the bar have to touch the ground or can it roughly go to the height of where Olympic plates would put it? #strategy #cardiodeadlifts

 

EMOM 30 reps with 45lb bar = Total 6750lbs

 

Spoiler

But will actually do a real attempt at some point that isnt a 8% 1RM weight...but that would be a great video

I feel like that would end up in one of those Gym Fail videos with people doing wacky shit.

Why not use 10 pound technique plates for 65 pounds?  Then you only need 94 reps.  One rep per 3 seconds gets you 100 reps.

Hi! I'm brand new, but this challenge seems doable for me :)

 

5RM is 90kg, but don't fancy trying anything that heavy so I think I will most likely do 60kg

 

16x60 = 960 and gets me beginner

31x60 = 1,860 and gets me advanced

 

So I guess my strategy will be sets of 8 and try not to die - Will be attempting tomorrow

Hey, me too! :D 

 

Actually... I just realised I only do 1 x 5 of 65 kg as part of my stronglifts 5 x 5 :(  I could probably stretch to a set of 8 @ 60 kg, but would I be able to repeat it before the timer runs out?  There's only one way to find out!

Well I just looked up how many I would need to do to hit the advanced male one (ha!) so I think I'm overreaching a bit there (FYI - 46). I've done sets of 5x10 at 60 before but definitely not within 5 minutes. That was some time ago though so MAYBE. I figure I'm just going to start and see what it feels like. 

 

I run Candito so I do 2 x 6 deadlifts after 3 x 6 squats, working weight for deads is 85kg right now so I reckon I've got a good shot at the advanced female total once I don't do the heavy squats before hand. Maybe I'll get close to the male advanced... like you say, only one way to find out!

Challenge done!  For the record, doing this at the end of my workout last night was a monumentally terrible idea.  

 

135# x9 reps per minute got me the advanced weight.  I probably did it wrong though.  I figured having rest time between sets would be good, so I did the 9 reps as fast as possible with good form.  Ended up doing the 9 reps in about 15 seconds and resting for 45 seconds, 5 times.  Bad idea.  By the time I finished my head was killing me.  Massive exertion headache.  Thankfully I've had them occasionally before and I know they go away after a few hours, which it did, but it sucked at the time.  

 

Anyway.  That's all folks!
