“CrossFit Games 8.4”
2008 CrossFit Games Workout #4
- 5 Rounds for Time
- 5 Deadlifts (275/185 lb)
- 10 Burpees
With a running clock, as fast as possible perform the prescribed work in the order written for 5 rounds.
Score is the time on the clock when the last round of Burpees is completed.
Deadlift: Each rep of the deadlift will only count when full range of motion is achieved. The bottom limit is when the barbell touches the ground with your hands in contact with the bar. The rep will not count if the barbell is dropped from any height. The top limit is when your hips and legs are fully extended with the front of your shoulder behind the barbell.
Burpee: Each rep of the burpee will only count when full range of motion is achieved. The bottom limit is when your chest and thighs touch the ground. The top limit is when your hands clap overhead with your feet off the ground and your hips and legs fully extended. There is no height requirement on the jump, but the clap must occur while airborne. The clap is considered overhead when the arm crosses the plane of the ear (when viewed from the side). If the timing is missed, you may repeat the jump to complete the rep.
