Over the years of running CrossFit gyms, we have taken literally thousands and thousands of pictures of amazing people pushing themselves to the limit. Many times I have been stricken by a fleeting thought of how similar the faces that athletes make at the point of maximal effort are to the faces of rock guitarists mid-solo.
So, this week I programmed the following workout for our CrossFit Endurance (CFE) classes:
20 Minute AMRAP:
Bodyweight Deadlift static hold
Run 400 meters
Every time you drop the bar, run 400 meters. Oh, and the bar should be either an axle bar, or a regular barbell with fat grips on it.
As usual, we were taking pictures as people were suffering through this one. The first image I saw was this one:
And so the idea for Deadlift Rockstar was born. The following gallery is a collection of some of the images I've thrown together. The members at FCCF and CrossFit Webster have been having a lot of fun with theses. I hope you enjoy them too! - Jeff
