Oh boy. Saturday morning will be interesting! My gym is having a Trap-bar deadlift competition as a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. I didn't really consider doing it until 2 weeks ago when my sister told me that she heard that they didn't get the participation that they were hoping for. At that point I decided to sign up just for the experience and to support a good cause. My sister and her husband are doing it, so I'll drag my husband along to watch us and we can all go out for lunch afterwards. You get 5 minutes to do as many deadlifts as possible. For the women there will be 185 pounds total to lift. For the men I think it is 285 but I'm not sure if I have that right. I was doing 185 deadlifts a couple of weeks ago so I know I can do them. I just don't know how many I can do in 5 minutes. . . but we will find out on Saturday! My sister said that her goal is 35. I said that my goal is to not hurt myself.
