A Top 40 Weightlifting Blog

Went out with Linda this morning. She's a real bitch!!!. I've been wanting to try Crossfit work outs for a while but I didn't find one that incorperated strickly barbell work. A friend suggested I try "Linda". The true Linda is Deadlift 1.5x BW, Bench Press BW, Squat Clean .75x BW. for 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 reps. Today since I am a crossfit virgin I did Deadlift 275lbs, Bench Press 195lbs, Power Clean (no squat) 135lbs. I managed to finish the whole thing in 32:05 minutes. I gotta say it's one hell of a cardio work out and my weaker parts are feeling pumped. The Bench Press I found rather easy but it still kept my heart rate elevated. A really demanding work out.
