“CrossFit Total”



The CrossFit Total is a series of three exercises combined into a strength test that was conceived by weight lifting coach Mark Rippetoe in 2006 for the CrossFit community. Consisting of the squat, overhead press and deadlift, the CrossFit Total is designed to be more accessible than the Olympic lifts and assesses whole body functional strength.

“The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift.

The first attempt would be a weight you know you can do for a heavy set of three.
The second attempt would be a weight you know without any doubt that you could do for a single, having just done the first attempt.
And the third attempt is the weight you want to do, based on your performance on the previous two attempts.”

Scale / sub as needed.  Post total rounds to comments.
