Crossfit Syosset/ Thursday, January 11th


1 Rep Max
Now, I know that some of you are a bit nervous when going for a Max Attempt on the Deadlift because you are afraid of injuring your spine.

Well, just follow what I always say 1,000 times a day and you should be ok.
Remember you Need to Stay TIGHT!  If you aren’t tight in the core your spine is taking the brunt of the work throughout the movement.  Your spine is the bridge between your upper and lower body right.
If you don’t keep your core tight around your spine then your spine has nothing to help it stay stable and straight throughout the movement which will in turn lead to your spine being forced into flexion.

So, Take a deep breath in PUSH YOUR GUT OUT and hold your breath through the whole movement, unless of course you are reading REDBOOK magazine which says to suck your gut in!  Reena How could you!  How do you go behind my back and read a magazine!
Anyways, be sure to hold your breath and stay as tight as you can get your whole body to stay!
