Do you have full range of motion about your hip joint? Try Star's test today before you deadlift. Do you overextend your spine to seek out tension in your hamstrings? Normal and functional full range of motion is, with a braced and neutral spine, being able to bend over and grasp your barbell with straight legs and a FLAT BACK. Can you do it? Better get cracking on your mobility homework.
Today's workout is heavy. The stimulus is all about pulling something heavy off the floor and putting something heavy overhead. You will use TWO BARBELLS for today's workout. It's a 5 min AMRAP and thus the stimulus is fast. That's right! Two barbells, fast and heavy, it's a CrossFitters dream workout. Good luck!
