Deadlift, 365
When I training for my Birthday Challenge last year, this was a warm-up weight. I'm trading my General Physical Preparation for Specific Physical Preparation. Oh yeah, those hex plates suck.

Notes: After the lengthy climbing session, I didn't have much left in the tank. I hit the basics hard : sprinting and lifting heavy stuff. I throw-in a little vertical and horizontal pressing to keep from becoming a hunchback. I had a bunch more planned, but I left instead of possibly hurting myself. In CrossFit world, that makes me a pansy. In my world, I'm focusing on my sport.
