CrossFit 204 Classic Event 8

[/caption] Event 8 – Be Quick or Be Deadlifts AMRAP in 7 minutes of: 5 deadlifts (275/205 lb.) 5 chest-to-bar pull-ups 5 toes-to-bars Standards Deadlifts: The lift starts with both plates on the floor and is completed when the knees and hips are fully open with the shoulders behind the bar. You do not have to overextend and arch your back, just make sure your shoulders are not over or in front of the bar. The hands must be outside the knees for all lifts; i.e., a “conventional deadlift.” Any attempt to aggressively bounce the bar off the ground is a no-rep. You may drop the bar from the top, but it must settle on the floor before you pull another rep (no Murski reps). Toes-to-bars: Both feet must touch the bar at the same time at the top of the rep. At the bottom, the arms must be locked out and the feet must be behind the bar (2012 Regional standard). Chest-to-bars: At the top, the chest, defined as any point below and including the collarbones, must touch the bar. The throat and chin do not count. At the bottom, the elbows must be fully locked out.
