These weekday classes are so much fun! The house is packed, and the energy is so positive.

Today’s workout started off with some Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (SDLHP) as the warm-up/strength portion of the day. It’s an exercise that is not used as often as some others in CrossFit, but you’ll be able to see by watching Clayton in the video, it’s definitely a full-body movement. Thanks to the trainers at CrossFit Headquarters, one of the things I try to tell athletes when performing it is to imagine someone is recording you doing the SDLHP, and go back and play the video forwards and backwards. When done properly, it should look exactly the same played in either direction. No pausing at the “hang” position. This video shows that very concept! Clayton did this really well!

Workout of the Day:
5 Rounds for Time of-
15 Power Cleans / 18 Box Jumps / 21 Kettlebell Swings

I just noticed that the video has the wrong date! I’ll fix that tonight!

Athlete Results:
5 Rep Max Sumo Deadlift High Pull
Clayton- 135lbs

Clayton (65lb Power Clean / 16kg KB)- 21:39
