    Default Adaptive Athlete Logan Aldridge Deadlifts 502 Pounds During 2021 CrossFit Games

    Logan Aldridge put on a show during day one of the 2021 CrossFit Games.
    Logan Aldridge can be viewed as motivation and an inspiration to many in all walks of life. On Tuesday during the 2021 CrossFit Games at the Allianz Energy Center in Madison, WI, Aldridge continued to show his incredible strength by performing a 502-pound deadlift as part of the Adaptive Division.
    Aldridge, who is missing most of his left arm, completed the lift with a strap around the bar that connected to his left shoulder. This was a PR-best by 12 pounds for Aldridge and he did it on day one of the competition. Aldridge set a new personal best for the second time in the span of one month. In June, Aldridge completed a 225-pound clean and jerk at the 2021 Bacon Beatdown competition.
    “This is the way: deadlift PR of 502 babyyyyyyy!! HYPED UP AGAIN!! ??,” Aldridge wrote on Instagram.
    Not only is Logan Aldridge a competitor but he is the Director of Training at the Adaptive Training Academy. He played a big role in an Adaptive Division being added to the CrossFit Games. This is the first year that it has been included in the Games. In December, CrossFit announced some significant changes and that included the addition of the Adaptive Division.

    Adaptive athletes across eight classes, for both men and women, were cleared to compete in the Open but would have to wait until 2022 to compete in the Games. That notion was softened on May 5 when CrossFit announced that the top five men and women from the Open would have a chance to compete in the Games. These five men and women were spread out over three categories in the Adaptive Division. These divisions are Upper Extremity, Lower Extremity, and Neuromuscular.
    The 2021 CrossFit Games will take place from July 27-Aug.1. After the first three events, Logan Aldridge currently sits in third place. He is behind Casey Acree and Jose Maldonado.
    Aldridge has had a big hand in progressing CrossFit to include many athletes in many different situations. He is proving that anything is possible and there should not be excuses made. In fact, Aldridge used the hashtags “YourExcuseIsNotValid” and his saying “ThisIsTheWay.”
