Back Squat, 1 rep
Shoulder Press, 1 rep
Deadlift, 1 rep
The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the Back Squat, Shoulder Press and Deadlift. Today is your chance to go for a new PB which will be used re-calculate new figures for the next cycle of 5-3-1. Following your warm-up, your three attempts at the each lift should consist of, firstly a lift that you absolutely know you can do. Secondly, a lift that you are pretty sure you can do and thirdly, if everything is feeling good – go for it! Having said that, don’t let greed get in the way of a good decision. Gaining strength is a journey that is measured in years not days, so if it doesn’t happen this time, there will be another chance down the track.
This session is always difficult to fit into an hour, so please think about your strategy before you come into train and be ready to work.
