Jeremy goes in for some tire flips while Stavros provides encouragement (and Jamie and Jax yell from the sidelines).
With a continuously running clock, perform 1 sumo deadlift high pull the first minute, 2 sumo deadlift high pulls the second minute, and continue adding one rep each minute until you can no longer complete the allotted reps in the minute.
The weight should be fairly heavy. If you are unsure about the weight, intermediate/advanced men should use approximately half their body weight, intermediate/advanced women should use about 1/3rd.
Post weight used and number of complete minutes and additional reps to comments.

Article from the Fitness Spotlight:
Do our ancestors tell us everything we need to know about diet and health?
I have been following the Palaeolithic lifestyle for nearly a year now. You may know it as the â€˜caveman dietâ€™, although this does not do justice to the concept.
The premise is that by eating what our ancestors ate and exercising as they exercised, we optimise our health and fitness. Since they ate like this and exercised like this for hundreds of thousands of years, natural selection dictates that our bodies will be designed to function best under those conditions. . .
Post thoughts to comments.
The “Big Girls Don’t Cry” Competition is THIS SUNDAY. Please post below if you are going to be able to swing by and cheer some of our own as we compete against other top CrossFitters! (There is also a few open slots, so let me know if you are interested).

From Michelle Rooney:
“For those of you who donâ€™t know, I sit on the board as a medical advisor for a local non-profit melanoma foundation, SCARF. SCARF was founded in honor of Sherri Tennant, a nurse who worked with us at Diablo Valley Oncology. She was an amazing and courageous woman who unfortunately lost her battle with melanoma in 2006. SCARFâ€™s mission is to educate the community about prevention and early detection of melanoma. Roccoâ€™s pizzeria is hosting a fundraiser for SCARF on Thursday, October 23rd. All you have to do is either dine in or order take out from Roccoâ€™s anytime on the 23rd, mention SCARF, and 25% of the net proceeds go to our NPO. I will be there most of the evening, eating pizza, probably drinking beer, and pretending to watch the world seriesâ€¦I would LOVE to see all of you. Please bring family and friends!”
If you don’t come to the Shed tonight, I expect you to swing by Rocco’s and support such a good cause. If you do come to the Shed, I expect you all to have some post workout nutrition at Roccos. DON’T FORGET TO MENTION SCARF! -jj
