First O’ The Month Assessment = CrossFit Total

I think it’s official: I am no longer terrified of the barbells!

This week, we did CrossFit Total at our women’s indoor class. That means we worked up to our 1-rep max on back squat, shoulder press, and deadlift by making three attempts at increasingly heavier weight until either we failed OR we succeeded but had taken three stabs at it. Then we took our highest successful attempts, added them together, and voila! a CrossFit Total score.

My numbers:
squat – 145
press – 75
deadlift – 180
CrossFit Total = 400

I have no idea if that’s objectively “good,” but I do know I did my best, so I’m going with “great for me!”
