Deadlifts and “Atlantis.” New PRs, but concerns about proper form send me in a new direction.

CrossFit Asheville does the Hero WOD “D.T.,” again. I use 105#. This is up from 95# in April. I am making my way slowly towards the Rx’d 155#.
CrossFit Asheville WODS \• August 17, 2009
After a decent, but short sleep, and a one block breakfast, I got to CFA by about ten minutes to six for the WOD, totally clueless about what to expect. It was fun. SO GREAT TO BE BACK.

CrossFit Asheville WODS \• June 26, 2009
Played poker last night with my whiskey-swilling, cigarette-smoking, pizza-scarfing comrades in vice, and I managed to escape with minimal damage (certainly no cigarettes, only two shots of whiskey, and only one slice of Papa John’s Meat Lover’s Pizza — call it a mini-cheat; it did not appreciably throw off the day’s totals). Went to bed [...]
