Tuesday 31st December 2013: CrossFit Total

 In WOD

WOD: Crossfit Total

Find your 1 RM using only three attempts in the following lifts:

  • Back Squat
  • Shoulder Press (Strict Press)
  • Deadlift

The heaviest lifts are combined to generate your Total. There is no time limit, but the athlete must complete all three attempts for one lift before they can move to the next movement.

“The way to bring more strength to the CrossFit approach is
with the CrossFit Total. The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best
of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift, the
three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing
functional strength.” Source: http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/52-2006_CFTotal.pdf
