1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:
Deadlifts (155 lb 70kg / 225 lb 102 kg)
Time cap: 10 minutes
Score is the total time it takes to complete the entire workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 10-minute time cap.
My first thought: What am I missing? This sounds too easy. WAY too easy.
The weight is relatively light. You’re only increasing by one rep each time. The standard changed away from a two-foot takeoff.
So, where’s the trick?
The trick is that by the time you get to rounds 7, 8, 9, and 10 you’re only half way if you’ve even made it this far before the 10 minutes are up (I didn’t, not even close).
22.2 ends with every athlete going to that dark, pain place, and just hanging on until the end. (No lie… I cried at the end of it. It probably looked like sweat, but … yeah… CRIED.)
I had to remind myself, just keep moving. And, my God, I was so grateful for an hour of yoga for recovery today.
Two down, one to go!
