Deadlift 5 x 3
The following is an excerpt from a CrossFit Journal article by Mark Rippetoe. He's as good an authority on lifting as anyone I've heard of anywhere.
Here are some basic precautions that need to be followed for safety. (when attempting a heavy lift)Great advice. Follow it.
1) Don’t be stupid.
Don’t lift if you’re injured to the extent that a total will aggravate the problem. This will cost you in at least training time, and possibly time off of work if you’re ultra-stupid.
2) Don’t be greedy.
Learn to recognize the difference between greed and ambition, and be merely ambitious.
3) Don’t be pig-headed.
If your first attempt tells you that you need to lower your second, do so, without a misplaced sense of diminished self-worth. It’s a test, and it’s designed to measure what’s there, not create something that’s not. That’s what training is for.
