Cristi's Deadlift

My assistant Cristi had a pretty good day deadlifting yesterday. She is damn impressive in this video. This is her second set of 3 with 450, conventional deadlift. She actually sumo deadlifted for a month or so, but when Kirk Karwoski came to visit, he worked on some form issues with her and she went back to conventional, which she likes better anyway. After she pulls, she does bent over rows with no straps for 5 sets of 3, usually with 245 lbs and up. Then some chins and curls and that's the training session.

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
