    I'm hit or miss at that weight too sometimes. One day 425 will go up smooth as silk, the next time I look like i have no business lifting 435 (I think it's a head game at the last 10lbs) . I'm steady up to 415 with no issues, as long as the hands stay good

    I don't chalk (I'm cheap that way) and I try to use the stiffest bar I can find to deadlift. It really helps you with grip and off of the floor. Then, when I go to my meet, use their chalk and go for a PR, it's easy. Took about three seconds to finish a rep with ten pounds more than I'd ever broken from the floor before. Bonus: If the bar had been stiff and slick, I would have been much better prepared than a lot of my fellow competitors. Train the hard way, then everything else is easy.

    Couldnt agree more! The quality control has pretty much disappeared, as a level one trainer i can tell you right now CF had turned into a cash cow, there was people at my seminar that have never tried Crossfit in their life and after 2days they where considered qualified to train athletes? Well balanced experienced gyms are becoming hard to find. Its sad crossfit can be a great program if used correctly

    Crossfit website has an "injuries" section in their forums. 237 pages long, filled with people injuring their low backs from "high speed high rep dead lifts" and shoulder injuries. Just putting it out there...
