Elevated Deadlifts and burpees

Jenny Banks and Kyle take the top score today with this doozy!

Skill:  Heavy single elevated deadlifts and hang snatches

WOD -15 min amrap:  5 Thrusters (115/75#), 10 deadlifts and 15 burpees over the bar

So why did we raise those deadlifts today?  Well for one it is easier to keep your back in a flat/neutral position when the bar is raised.  You are in a better position to pull that heavy weight!    It also allows you to get comfortable pulling a heavier load as you are in a better position.

So did you hit a new 1 rep max today in your pull?  If so  keep it up as hopefully this will translate into a heavier lift from the floor down the road
