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 at some of the classes, and as soon as I saw the images I was struck by how similar the faces people were making are to the faces made by rock guitarists.
A few hours and several photoshop sessions later, the Deadlift Rockstars were born. I hope you enjoy these as much as our members have! - Jeff
