We started out with 5 sets of 2 deadlifts.  That is bar from the ground to waist height.  I did 175 lbs.

The workout was:

  • 5 minutes of rowing.  Record the calories burned.
  • 4 minutes of box jumps
  • 3 minutes of hang squat cleans.  Take the bar from the knees to the chin while squatting.
  • 2 minutes of light wall balls – 10 lbs.  Squat while holding a medicine ball then stand up and throw it up against the wall 9 feet up.
  • 1 minute of pike pushups

I did 158 total reps.


This week at my gym is dedicated to seeing what our one rep max is for various lifts.  Today it was deadlifts.  I did 175 lbs last week which was my max at that gym.  I did 200 lbs once elsewhere.

I got up to 175 and then decided to quit doing the math as I added weight.  Doing the math is hard at that time in the morning.  I didn’t need the mental strain.  When I got to as heavy as I could go I had to do the math several times to believe it.  I was at 215!

Then we did max effort pull ups or ring rows in 90 seconds.  I did 30 ring rows.  After that it was max effort burpees in 90 seconds.  I did 19.

  1. 215?!?!?!

    That’s more than I weigh!

    That’s more than I weigh plus what I can lift!


    You’re amazing. Oh and you can’t argue with me about that. Nope. I’m always right about these things. Just ask my husband. He’ll tell you. I’m right.
