Workout:

As Many Rounds As Possible in 20 Minutes of:
7 Deadlifts
7 Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
7 Full Squat Cleans

Use the same load for all three lifts. Post load & rounds completed to comments.

These three exercises build upon each other, and are a natural progression in learning the movements.

There are instances where the rate of improvement for a specific component of fitness needs to be faster than CrossFit programming “as written” will provide. Detractors sometimes seize those exceptions as an argument against CrossFit’s applicability to sport. I think the better response is simply that CrossFit is specific to broad physical fitness—to development of far-reaching, usable strength, power, endurance, mobility, and health. It is the best way to train for any sport, job, or goal that requires comprehensive fitness and general physical preparedness. It is also perfect for any coach who wants to rapidly establish an athlete’s fitness base before adding in or moving on to specific sport training.
