CrossFit Total

The CrossFit Total

By Mark Rippetoe
December 01, 2006
PDF Article
The CrossFit Total reflects an athlete's functional strength capacity more accurately than any other test, writes Mark Rippetoe, author of Starting Strength and owner of The Wichita Falls Athletic Club/CrossFit Wichita Falls.
The CrossFit Total is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift. All three lifts are done while standing on the floor. They require minimal and inexpensive equipment. They are not technique- dependent to the extent of the Olympic lifts, yet they require technical proficiency beyond mere passing familiarity. They are safe when performed correctly, since they can all be performed without spotters—alone in a garage if necessary.
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.
Anyone in a position to attempt a legitimate CrossFit Total should be familiar enough with their capabilities on the lifts to have a fairly good idea of just what might be possible for a one-rep max (1RM). This number is what you warm up intending to do. A meet situation will involve three attempts, and this is a good way to determine a true 1RM.
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.

"Three Wise Men"

The Three Wise Men Veterans Day Tribute launched a national movement to bring communities together on Veterans Day to honor those who survived their combat experience but have come home and are struggling. To honor these veterans, we asked individuals to participate in a tribute workout in their home gyms across the country on Wednesday, November 11th.
We kicked off the campaign for our veterans with a special tribute event on the deck of the USS Midway in San Diego, California on October 18, 2014. This year, we are back and hosting the Tribute event back on the Midway on Nov 7th, then around the nation on Nov 11th. These warriors fought for our country, now it is our turn to fight for them.

1 minute at each station

Battling ropes

Jumping pull ups
Push ups
Lunges

Skill:

10 minutes of mobility - some of you have been AWESOME at this so far this week, working on tight areas, soreness, asking coaches for things to work on or with for these areas, and some of you have not been using this 10 minutes to your advantage as an athlete. As one of the tightest unmobile people in the gym, I can tell you USE THE TIME, make time every day for mobility. In the long run it is better for you than the weights we throw around, why you ask? Because if you aren't prepared to lift and be agile, you get injured!

Strength:

Deadlifts
10-8-6 warm up
3-3-3-3-3 at 90% of your 1 rep max

**** Do not "bounce" the weight off the floor to get your next rep - its ok to set yourself and prepare for the next lift, bouncing the weight is only going to cause you to have to "catch" the weight 3 inches off the ground, causing you to add undue "stress" to your back, glutes, hamstrings, and even shoulders

**** Yes it is heavy, but FINISH the lift. A deadlift is from the ground to lock out at top, and back down. Unless you are seeing stars, or the lights are closing out, follow your lift back to the ground maintain form and get STRONGER.

Metcon:

Weight Lifting Wednesday - what???? Another WTF moment for the week HAHAHAHAHA
