WODs at 9:45 & 11 am

Are you feeling chipper? I know that I am!

As we recently established 1RMs for the high bar back squat, dead-lift, and press, it’s an ideal time to complete the benchmark WOD the CrossFit Total.

The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the dead-lift.

“The order for performing the three lifts will be squat, press, and then dead-lift. The best single attempt for each of the three lifts are added together for the CrossFit Total. There is no time limit for each lift or for the length of the session in which they are all performed, but they must all be performed during one session—i.e., you cannot leave the area to rest or perform other activities between the three lifts. Multiple progressions to the best attempt are not allowed; do not work up to your best squat, then change an item of equipment or clothing and work up to it again to try to better your first effort.”
