Corinne, Dover and Tammy have all completed a Whole Life Challenge. They also test their mental toughness by deadlifting blindfolded. Mark Twight, owner of Gym Jones, trained the cast of 300 and had them deadlift blindfolded. How do you think deadlifting blindfolded impacts your experience? Tell us in the comments.
It's Whole Life Wednesday and this week's Off Season Skill Practice is to do one thing each day this week that you’ve been “meaning to do” for a long time. In other words, get shit done.
The WLC folks think this is an important skill to develop because:
We’ve all been there — standing at the threshold of what looks like an insurmountable to-do list. There is so much to get done, it almost doesn’t seem worth getting started.
Use the heaviest weight you can for each set.
Rest as needed between sets.
We are working strength, stamina, and power in today's workout. Do a 3-5 warm-up sets of 5 reps to get you to your first set of 10. If you want to develop your grip strength, DO NOT use a reverse grip. Grasp that bar with a double overhand grip to get stronger.
When you record today's WOD on BTWB, be sure to select "As Prescribed (Rx'd)." Good luck!
Record your WOD on Beyond the Whiteboard.
