FRI 10.25.13 CrossFit Total


Don’t forget to add it to the PR board so we can celebrate with you!

CrossFit Total

By Coach Beka
CrossFit Total is the total of your maximum-effort back squat, press and deadlift. This is our final progress check this week, and one of my favorites!
As excited as you may be to find out what your 1-rep max (hopefully a PR!) is, don’t take a lot of attempts to find it.
We’ll treat this like a powerlifting meet. Warm up, then take three attempts at your best squat. Then warm up for press & take three attempts to find your max press. Finally, warm up for deadlift and then take three attempts to find your max deadlift.
After warming up, the first attempt should be a weight you know you can do for three reps. The second attempt should be a weight you know you can do for a single rep (current PR), and you’re shooting for a new PR on your third attempt!
Don’t forget to record your results! A lot of our strength work is based on a percentage of your 1-rep max.
Happy PR Friday! 🙂
