The Deadlift max was one of the first tests of our new strength programming.  We've been seeing a LOT of PR's lately and want to hear how you did on the deadlift. 

Strength:  Weighted/Strict  Ring Pull Ups 3x10-12

WOD:  Every Minute on the Minute for 12 minutes do;

8 Snatch Grip Deadlifts (135/95)

1 Snatch

4 Overhead Squats

To keep things simple, you can snatch the 8th rep of the deadlifts for a total of 12 reps per round and a total score possible of 144.  Your goal is to complete all 12 rounds, scale the weight if you need to but scale as little as possible and push yourself harder.

REC:  50 Ring Dips.  10 Ring Rows every time you stop the dips.
