Please note that if you want more time to perform your CrossFit Total – you are welcome to come in and warm-up and get started prior to the start of the evening class times. Same goes for morning classes – you can use the gym between 6 and 9am to do your total if you think you’ll need more than an hour (must use lower room between 7 and 8am). We will still have every class starting on our normal schedule with a trainer leading you through a guided warm-up and instruction, but we want you to have the option for more time if you need it.
The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift… 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.
The first attempt would be a weight you know you can do for a heavy set of three if needed. 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.
Back Squat x 1-1-1; rest as needed
Strict Press x 1-1-1; rest as needed
Deadlift x 1-1-1; rest as needed
