Time to see the improvement

Comment #1 - Posted by: Scott Oaks at October 24, 2008 7:59 PM

This seemed a little overdue.

Any Crossfitters in the Purdue/West Lafayette area?


Comment #2 - Posted by: George at October 24, 2008 8:00 PM

I'm 40 pages into Starting Strength. Can't wait to knock this out of the park!

Comment #3 - Posted by: RV-KY at October 24, 2008 8:01 PM

Do one rep max days help your strength or is it specific to measuring?

Comment #4 - Posted by: Madmardy at October 24, 2008 8:05 PM

#7 that's a good question - i'd like to know the answer too. my guess is its more of a measuring of progress, and training the skill of strength in exerting maximal efforts.

to my understanding, maximal efforts from 1 to 3 repetitions increase strength without building muscle mass by training to increase the percentage of muscle fibers being contracted, essentially using your existing muscles more effectively, but there's a limit to how much that can improve.

Perfect! We have a CFT going on in Albany! Any local affiliates are welcome to attend.

Comment #9 - Posted by: dan at October 24, 2008 8:36 PM

I'm very new to cross fit and have my doubts about successfully doing the "total" assigned today correctly. Is there another work out I should do or should I just attempt the "total"?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Daniel Bryant at October 24, 2008 9:08 PM

@ Comment #7:

Don't take this as canon, I've only been doing Crossfit for a month and a half...

My plan is to do 3 sets of each with a broomstick for emphasis on good form, 3 more sets with increasing weight to get myself warm, and *then* go for the 1RM. If you follow a process like this, it will certainly be more than just a measuring day.

Comment #11 - Posted by: MH at October 24, 2008 9:14 PM

I was just thinking about CFT this morning. I was hoping we would be doing it soon. I'm ready to hit this WOD again!

Comment #13 - Posted by: el ingeniero at October 24, 2008 9:21 PM

So heres a quick question, now i know this will be and always will be a debated topic. Dont get me wrong i love Crossfit and all that it truely is about, And i think what coach is doing is amazing and i am so glad to be a part of it.

But i got into a arguement with a brand new affiliate about this. Now this person just openned up a brand new box, great more people we can help get moving the better, but here is what my concerns are they were a member at another local CF gym and loved it and wanted to open there own place. But other then working out for a little while and then getting their level 1 that it for them on fitness and Ive been to a cert and have seen others like them.

Now here is my concern i think there should be a higher standard on testing to get certed like the level 2 has so that we know people coming out of the cert know how to teach the movement not just do the movements, lots can do but not teach.

But this has been a concern of my with alot of other fitness cert you can write a test and be certed in a hr which to me bring the level of professonalism down. I guess this is all brought up by the whole Cook Boyle thing which i agree and disagree with alot they said, I have seen a few affiliates that have taken the ideas of Crossfit and kinda of mess it up. Basically just focussing killing people with no ryhme or reason.

I just hope that Crossfit doesnt get to watered down by this or put a bad name to something that i love. Alright now let hear all the nasty comments.

Comment #14 - Posted by: jeff at October 24, 2008 10:00 PM

Just did this yesterday and PR'ed on everything.
245,140,315
690 CFT

Comment #15 - Posted by: Neil at October 24, 2008 10:30 PM

So overdue. I actually skipped yesterday's WOD just because I needed to throw some heavy things around. Turns out that although my pull ups have gone up and benchmark times have gone down significantly, I've lost some strength. If we don't see some more strength WODs mixed in I'm going to have to supplement my training.

Comment #17 - Posted by: Eva T. at October 24, 2008 11:21 PM

CFT well needed

#17 Excellent question. I can only ad that other professions deal with similar issues of "qualification". Regardless of what a piece of paper says, there is more to it than that, whether talking crossfit or any other professional qualification.

I plan to attend a cert here sometime in the next 12 months, so I cannot comment on the quality of the certs. From what I can tell of the video and what I read in the newsletter, HQ is dead on (not to mention my own personal results). Will others bastardize it, water it down and give us all a bad name...probably, happens in other professions why not here? All we can do is the best we can to represent ourselves and do crossfit proud. Coach and HQ seem to have a handle on their certs and the qualifications they are looking to teach, as well as running a business. I don't believe more testing guarantee's better quality instructors.

Evaluate professionals, talk to them and interact with them for a while. It will not take long to notice a difference between the good ones from the great ones from the poor ones. The good ones tend to be very technically proficient and the great ones tend to have something special, a talent if you will, they have "IT"in their hearts. Passion. Look for people with passion about what they do and excellence isn't too far behind. Those who have poor attitudes, generally weed themselves out after long.

Comment #18 - Posted by: Dr D at October 24, 2008 11:57 PM

Hadn't done this for a while and it was good to do. Couple pr's in the process.

Squat: 340 pr
Shoulder Press: 185
Deadlift: 435
Total: 960 pr

Comment #19 - Posted by: MarkFu at October 25, 2008 12:00 AM

Jeff, I think you have a valid point.

An ill-prepared trainer is potentially dangerous. It is great to see them want to get amongst it and get involved. All kudos to them for it. I have spent 18 months learning to be a personal trainer and there are still things that I would like to learn more about before I take on a clients other then close family and friends that I am intimately familiar with (This may just be a personal thing?).

An indicator of their ability/quality will be how many athletes they attract and keep in their gym. I recently attended the first Australian cert in sydney( yes I'm an Aussie), and the point made there was if you start with 30 clients, two weeks later you have 15, two weeks after that you have 10, and two weeks later you have 3, then you are not as good a trainer as someone who has 30 clients after the same 6 week period, even if those 30 people have made only slight improvements to their fitness. Thing is they come back for more!

When you take someone through an exercise session, you have a duty of care as a trainer. As safe as crossfit is, there is still potential to injure someone if exercises and sessions are not conducted/executed properly.
My point of view is If an athlete that I am training were to injure themselves then I have failed them totally. This is perhaps the point where the art and science of exercise meet. How do you know how hard to push? What is apropriate for each individual? This is perhaps another point of discussion?

Ultimately people will vote with their feet. I would wish them good luck and hope that they have or are developing a lust for knowledge on all things related to exercise and Crossfit.

Comment #22 - Posted by: Julian at October 25, 2008 1:26 AM

comment #13. just do the total! work up to a weight that u feel confident with and can hold good form. it will be a great bench mark for where your strength is at currently. also it will be a great motivator when u next do the total to have a number that u will blow out of the water. part of the power of crossfit is its measurabilitx.

Comment #23 - Posted by: darren_insyd at October 25, 2008 1:59 AM

This is a great wod, the deadlift and shoulder press are no problem, but im always a bit scared with the max weight squat as i work out alone , and in my gym i cant drop the weights on the floor. Anyone have any advice on the safety factor of doing these on your own?

A couple of things:

1) How in the world did you post this WOD, Lauren, at 8:35 am, when it's only 6:30am here on the east coast?

2) To #14 Jeff: Two things..Professionalism and Virtuosity. The clients will know when these two components are present and when they are not. A poorly run affiliate will not keep afloat without continually practicing, educating, and serving both themselves and the public. Here's a quote taken from the front page of Catalyst Athletics yesterday.

Robb Wolf of NorCal Strength & Conditioning

Robb makes a great point in this post - If you're a coach or trainer and are not continually seeking out new ideas, new practices and interacting with experts in your field, you're doing yourself and your clients a great disservice.

Robb is right on!!

did a cft last sunday.

back squat 405 (pr by 20 lbs.)
press 180 (ties cft pr)
deadlift 425

total 1010 (pr by 10 lbs.)

very surprised by the back squat. got greedy on the deadlift and went for 445f after 425. then couldn't get 435 past my knees. think i would have gotten it if i had done it first.

Ex powerlifter here, been crossfitting for a few months...

Squat-515lbs x 1

Shoulder Press- 225lbs...not sure on form, but I resisted the urge to push press

Deadlift- 545lbs x 1

CFT= 1285lbs

I used knee wraps and a belt for the squat, and just a belt for the deads and press.

Squat: 345 x 1 (355x3 attempts, 1st two about 2" short of parallel, 3rd attempt went too deep and needed assist back up

DL: 385 x 1 (3 attempts at 405, bombed)

Shoulder Press:...freakin shoulders SHOT from D/L... but managed 165 x 1

TOTAL: 895

Comment #36 - Posted by: Mark Westman/45/6'2, 235 at October 25, 2008 6:15 AM

I'll second the earlier question on safely squatting for max weight w/o a rack or spotters.

Is there a relative conversion of front squat weight to back squat? I know it wouldn't be an official cft, but it's something.

Comment #37 - Posted by: Chet at October 25, 2008 6:35 AM

A newbie, so please forgive me. Two questions:

1 What does PR stand for?

2 How do we figure out our correct maximum weight? Put on too much weight, and remove plates until we can barely finish one rep? Or, what makes sense to me, keep piling on plates until one rep finishes at failure?

It just seems too difficult to predict the correct weight, and only have one shot at it. Think I'm missing something here...

Comment #38 - Posted by: f-train at October 25, 2008 7:11 AM

Good Day to all,

Did this one with my Buddy, a newcomer to Crossfit. He's hooked now.

Squat 225(attempted 275, got it up, but technique was bad so I didn't count it

Shoulder Press 155(tried 165, but it wasn't moving up.

DeadLift 365(tried 405, but not today)

M/33/190

I love Crossfit and how it works for my fitness goals.

I must not be doing something right! Although, I have been doing CrossFit for almost a year, and have scaled every workout to be sure that my form is correct. I am just now really loading, so I will watch for the next month or so.

Rock on

flew in from LA late last night so got to bed way too late and paid for it this morning when my daughter woke me up early. still, 2 PRs aren't bad.

deadl 221

I'm reasonably happy with my numbers. this is my first time doing something like this since i started crossfit. hopefully with a little training / coaching i will be able to push those numbers a bit higher next time.

Comment #43 - Posted by: Jeremyash at October 25, 2008 7:47 AM

Okay, I've been trying to remain positive about this, but I can't get over the fact that my school gym is seriously lacking in equipment. There are no barbells, no squat racks, only a few dumbbells and a bunch of machines. I was able to 'sub' squats on a leg press machine, and use a shoulder press machine, but I couldn't figure out how to manage the deadlifts.

So here's my numbers that I'm not even considering valid.

Leg press: 150kg
Shoulder Press: 65kg

Afterward, I ran tabata intervals on the treadmill: 14kph / 8.0% grade

Then swam 500m.

If anyone has any suggestions how to do oly lifts in this kind of environment, I would be forever grateful!

Deadlift - 415lbs (pr) - could of lift more but there wasnt any more weights avalaibel

Comment #49 - Posted by: Larry-Crossfit Suffolk at October 25, 2008 8:43 AM

My Hands are Hamburger right now, So I Totaled Yesterday b ecause it was that or a 5k.

Back Squat 315#
Shoulder Press 165#
Deadlift 385#

Total is 865. I have been in the 900's before but just didnt have the juice yesterday.

I have a question.. When they totaled at the Original Games, they used a Formula to determine who had the most power. it helped level out the big guys and little guys, so it wasnt just a "Who has the most pounds"

Do we hav e a link to that formula. Id love to know it so I can figure my total power.

1. PR- personal record

2. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the correct CFT is each exercise gets three and only three attempts. You can warmup with any weight you want but once you start your lifting you only get three attempts. Lift what you think will be your absolute maximum for 1 rep. Not what you know you can do.

Hope that helps.

we are about the same height, weight, and age so you might be having some of same problems that I had with CF when I first started. check your diet "paleo/zone diet" has helped me immensely. if you are not making progress its probably diet, lack of sleep, undertraining, or over training. make sure you are getting enough fat, protein, and sleep to keep your lanky body building muscle. also you mentioned your scaling for form. thats important however dont focus on form so much that you lose you intensity. i think coach said during one of his CF radio apparences that "if we are constantly focusing on perfect form we will never push the limit on power output" power output and intensity being one in the same as stated by coach on a different occasion. bottom line do the WOD like a fight you dont stress about form very much in a fight, you know the correct form, now (WOD time) is time for intensity, power, and aggression in application of what you already know how to do. any actual cerified guys (or girls) want to chime in?

#54 Andrew

if you were in a competition then you only get three lifts for each lift and the weight on the bar can never go down for each of the three lifts. if you're doing a cft for today you can take as many attempts as you want as long as you go in order (bs, p, dl).

#38 f-train

you build up in weight lighter to heavier until you fail.

Comment #64 - Posted by: ken c at October 25, 2008 9:28 AM

good workout.

squat -275. solid rep. didnt have spotters, the inside of the rack, or mats down on my newly concreted gym. so i didnt want to push it. besides got some heavy squatting to do for my other workouts tomorrow.

ohp- finally hit 165 for 1. felt good. did a drop set with 135 for 7 reps.

deadlift- 295 x 5 x 3 reps.

In http://library.crossfit.com/free/pdf/52-2006_CFTotal.pdf Rippetoe says

"The order for performing the three lifts will be squat, press, and then deadlift."

He didn't give much of a reason for the order other than basically 'These are the rules', and even though he specifies a S(quat), P(ress), D(eadlift) order, he then talks about the fine points of the exercises using a PDS order.

How about experimenting by trying different orderings and seeing your results? Afterall, no one knows for sure in real life the order tasks will present themselves, so seems reasonable.

The 6 possible orders that Squat, Press, and Deadlift can present themselves are:

SPD
SDP
PSD
PDS
DSP
DPS

Back injury prevented me from squat and deadlift. Tried to do SP and got 165 easily, then failed on 185.

Injuries suck.

Followed up with some air squat, walking lunge, and d-u cycles; then with some push-up, dip, and dead-hang pull-ups.

Here's hoping I don't get another weekend warrior injury in flag football today...

I'm not trying to open a mean-spirited can of worms here, but I just discovered that at my gym, which will remain anonymous, that a fellow athlete has been taking, shall we say, pharmeceutical enhancers of the illegal variety. I'm not trying to rat this person out, but the person in question mentioned that at the games, conversations he/she had with certain people helped explain some of the amazing numbers you saw.
Will testing be apart of the games in the future? I'm offended on behalf of all those athletes who bust their butt, and would hate to see them get cheated out in the one true competition to judge the fittest man and woman. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts.

Comment #93 - Posted by: joale at October 25, 2008 10:29 AM

So, I'm on my 6th week of Crosfit, love it love it love it. Here's my problem... I'm finding myself demotivated. Here's what I mean. I'll get on the site, see the WOD and be completely ecstatic to go get it done. By the time it comes to go work out (usually at the end of the day) I'll be so worn out I have to use all of my mental strength to force myself to go to the gym or wherever to complete it. I'll usually get halfway through it and just not finish it. This has been going on since I came back from oral surgery. I know it's all mental and not physical, but I can't get over it. Maybe it's because things are winding down on deployment and everyone just wants to go home. I don't know... anyway, enough of the background, anyone out there have any advice? I don't have a CF buddy so I'm in this all on my own at least for the next month. I don't know if there could be any tips to help keep myself motivated or if this is just something I need to overcome myself, but I just feel better sharing this with my CF family. Thank you guys for being around. I really do love each and every person out there completing WODs with me. Crossfitters are a rare, extrodinary breed of the human species and I hold you all close to my heart.

Enough of the emotional crap, Grab the Kool Aid and GET SOME!

The deadlift is by far the greatest lift ever; I've gained so much strength with this lift that I would not give it up for anything in this world. Also, for all those out there that are just starting; don't give up, this is by far the greatest workout ever put together. Finally, for all of the service members (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, & Marines) out there that are wondering what CrossFit is all about; give it a shot, you will not be disappointed. I began CrossFitting (by this I mean that I started following the website WODs) roughly three months ago and the results have been incredible; unmatched by any other workout I've ever tried and I've tried a dozen or more.

Thanks Coach and the entire CrossFit staff.

#53 Erin

I think we all, from time to time, suffer from some degree of lack of motivation. And as the degree of this varies, so does the cause, but it's essentially 'not feeling like doing it.'

I, like you, train alone and there have been times over the years when I've had the same excitement at seeing the WOD, then the loss of motivation as the day progressed. I've not found a magic bullet to fix this emotion, but typically I just get mad at myself for being wimpy about it....and even call myself some colorful names. This is usually enough to don the workout clothes and head to the gym.

Once I start the WOD I usually don't lose interest, but I can sometimes post PR's just by channeling anger/irritation from a recent event or incident. Something as simple as the memory of being cut off in traffic by some jerk can be artificially magnified, and last week I actually used this to set a PR for 3X dead lifts. The incident itself was meaningless, but I used it to fuel something positive. It's kinda like what some athletes do when they hear about a benign, derogatory comment made by an opponent --> they use it as bulletin board motivation.

Keep pushing Erin. Set some goals. Push yourself. Do it for your Mom. Do it for the jerk in the gym. In other words, do it. Trust me, you'll feel so much better about yourself afterwards ~

RE: #88 Nikki

I've been thinking about that whole issue of performance enhancing supplements ever since someone was asking if Gillian was on the juice the other day and I think that for me, Crossfit is more than trying to have the fastest times or the heaviest weights - it's also about the community of great people as well as the fact that most crossfitters are going to live longer than the average Jim.

When branching the topic of performance enhancing supplements, I think that it is important to remember that for the average crossfitter, they will never hold "elite" or "firebreather" status - that is not to demean the efforts of anyone, but simply put, some people are genetically gifted for that sort of thing, whereas others (although absolutely tough as nails themselves!) just will never be able to reach that certain level.

That being said, the whole issue of steroids and such, I believe, should only really concern those within the elite circles of crossfit I think, because it only really concerns them (as athletes wanting to defend their records). Should testing be a part of the games? Why not. If it makes some people feel better, cool - and it just goes to give Crossfit even more credibility.

For me, I'm just a simpleton who enjoys the community, the workouts and the great feeling of accomplishment from the WODs.

I'm sure that other people feel differently about it in this day and age of instant gratification, but I'd reather live a longer, happier and healthier life with decent crossfit times rather than the potential alternative.

I apologize for the length of this post. Please feel free to critique.

Stay well,
Matt

Comment #130 - Posted by: Rosser at October 25, 2008 12:05 PM

Male, 30, 145lbs, 5'6"

I just resumed CrossFit yesterday after seven weeks of Starting Strength, so imagine my surprise on seeing a CFT today. Ha. Just my luck...

Back Squat: 185
After my 185 attempt, my ego got the best of me and tried to up it to 205 (as 185 seemed reasonable). That simply wasn't gonna happen. Rested and tried several more times, but couldn't get it above 185 again. Grrr. My hips (and calves) are stiff and sore fromt he sprints yesterday, and there was noticeable lack of mobility in my hips (and an unusual amount of b*tt wink).

Overhead Press: 115
Very happy with this. Tried for 120, and again, no go.

Deadlift: 254
Also quite pleased with this.

Total: 554

My question to the group here: how many times ones own body weight should be a goal? I was able to total 3.83 times my current body weight. I factored a bunch of folks (all men) here (who include their weight) and the average appears to be about 4x ones body weight. For me at 145, I guess I should be aiming for at least 580 assuming that average.

It seems a lot of folks are aiming for 1000, but this all seems very connected to body weight, and the 1000 goal may not be reasonable for a 150 pound individual (then again, it's worth shooting for the moon!)

Just to be frank here, If you can deadlift a weight, or squat a weight, you can do the other with at least that amount.

For instance, if someone can DL 300lbs, he should be able to squat at least that amount. Usually the DL is a little bit lower actually because the grip is involved (not so in my case, but a competition legal squat is a mother effer). Just my opinion and what I've been taught.

First time to do this. I was working out alone and I was hyper-paranoid about injury. Will do better next time AND have a spotter. Hopefully that will help my mental game.
I can tell you already that this program is working. My legs have always suffered with strength, but I haven't been cheating on them with Crossfit and it shows. The total weight may not seem like much, but for me it felt good. I feel confident that I will see great gains in weight (with proper form) the next time this rolls around.

Screwed this up. Did clean instead of shoulder press.

CFWU x 2

I did a few warm ups for each of these before going all out.

Squat-135,185,225, 245 (pr)

DL-135, 225, 315 (pr) my grip always gives out

Clean- 135, 155 (pr)

I would put my shoulder press somewhere around 180, but I will have to try it to find out.

This was my first weighted back squat ever and because of that I sorta got scared that I wouldn't be able to recover if I made any mistakes. Thanks to Mark Rippetoe and his many great videos on form and proper technique.

RE: Sailor Erin

Someone once told me that if there is anything I really want to do, have been talking about for awhile, etc, then what I need to do is turn my "shoulds" into "musts."

Oh, and for me I find that after work I can't go home, sit/lay down, or do any typically "winding down" type activities. I just have to go straight to the gym. Then I nip that post-work tiredness in the butt, get energized while at the gym, and then have energy for other stuff the rest of the evening.

Are you feeling really fatigued? Could be how you're eating, I know my diet directly affects my mood on an hour to hour basis.

Got all PRs, was hoping that my Press would have gone up more, only went up five pounds, but oh well. Tried to squat 265 and failed, so dropped the weight. Previous PR for that was 225. DL old PR was 331, I like doing the DL because the bumper plates are in KG and I'm not really sure how much I'm lifting, makes it more interesting cause I never know what I got for DL until I get home and find a conversion calculator.

Wow. did not expect that. Heavy stress at work over last couple of weeks (bad stress) and just got home tonite feeling low energy.

Took a week off after Mr.Joshua (after 18 weeks on) and this is my first week back (2nd cycle). Nice stuff. I definitely won't be as hesitant to take a week off next time!

Had pr's on all three lifts today. Getting closer to may goal of 700.

warmup - 3 x 10 glute bridges/squats/burpees

My first Crossfit Total

Back Squat: 3 x 128; 2 x 178; 2 x 198; 1 x 218; 1x 228; 1 x 248. With a rack or spotters, I'm sure I could have gone a bit higher. No sense pushing it, esp. with no one else home.

Shoulder Press: 5 x 78; 1 x 98; 1 x 108; 1 x 118; 1 x 128. Torn rotator cuff (I think) hurt like hell on these.

Deadlift: 3 x 178; 1 x 228; 1 x 268; 1 x 288; 1 x 298; 1 x 308; 1 x 318; 1 x 328. My pr is 345...I fizzled out on these. Maybe the effect of doing the squat & shoulder press first?

Crossfit Total: 704

I'm glad I got over 700, but the deadlift should have been better.

Double-arm paddle out 200 m to turn around point. Turn board around, and paddle hard to catch wave.

Ride wave 100+ m back towards shore.

Completed 3 successfully and about 4 attempts where I fell into the water. Failed to catch wave many times.

This was about 100lbs higher than my first try at a CFT a few months ago. I don't lift heavy much at all. I think the big jump was due to being in uncertain territory the first time and pushing it pretty hard this time. Basically I think this is a "true" reflection whereas the first time was an experiment. Looking forward to cracking 750.

BS - 245, 265, 275
Overhead Press - 125, 135, 145 (FAIL)
Deadlift - 255, 275, 295

Numbers are down overall, but I expected this. That said, I thought the Back Squat had room, and the overhead press was a little rushed. I could have done at least one more rep of 135 in the same set as the 1st, but 145 was too big of a leap, or I didn't get psyched enough for it since when I took the 145 off the rack, I was about to do a push press and then I was like, wait, what am I doing? and then I couldn't get the rep.

The 295 deadlift looked ugly, but it wasn't too hard. The 255 and 275 were actually pretty good form, so I think I could do 295 with good form too, I just let it slip a little bit.

Mild right shoulder pain from attempting MU's yesterday. Waa. Getting close.

Comment #375 - Posted by: Greg/48/70"/205/3/17/08 at October 27, 2008 1:40 PM

2 Days behind, but did it in the end:

BS: 215kg/473lb vs 200kg/440lb last time
SP: 75kg/165lb vs 78.25kg/172.5lb
DL: 175kg/385lb vs 172.5/379.5lb

Total: 465kg/1023lb vs 451.25kg/992.75lb

So, cracked 1000lb and PB for DL and BS.

Not a bad workout, but want to crack 504kg/1109lbs, which I calculate as the threshold for "advanced" vs my weight as defined in the Crossift FAQ.

BS 315 this was fairly easy meaning i probably could hit 345 but no spotter so i stopped there

SP 160 PR by 5lbs i tried 165 but no go

DL i'm happy to post a 315 for the first time in my life. PR by 30lbs. never thought i would see the day i would pull 3 plates. only started really doing much deadlifting the last 5 mos or so and a year ago would be hesistant to pull 225 due to it being so new to me and having lower back issues. i believe switching to all crossfit has fixed so many problems and has dramatically increased my deadlift. thanks CF!!!!

I've been watching the site for about 2 years, doing the workouts on and off infrequently. I've been staying with the WODs the last three weeks and when I saw the Crossfit Total come up I knew it was a sign. Today marks the beginning of keeping records!

Crossfit Total:

Total: 615

Form wasn't perfect on the squats and cleans, need to work on that. I need work on my flexibility in order to get all the way down on the squats.

Felt good. No belt, no wraps, had a good warm up, air squats, front squat w/bar and over head with bar. Worked 225x5 315x3 then opened at 365. Deadlift was a disappointment bar was slipping from my hand. No chalk forgot to bring my sock. It's ok Though made a new friend, guy was doing Fran. In between sets I walked over when he was finished. "Fran?" "Hell yea!!" Both of us swapped grins and exchanged #'s. Found Another Brother in Iron. Told him bought the cert coming up, and we'll train together when I get back. God I love this!! Thanks Coach.

Deadlift felt a little funky because I was coming off of a four day back "episode" where I couldn't walk. Squat is pretty good for not doing it in about two years.

Late to the party and incomplete, but I'll note it anyway:
M44/5'10"/155
Been back in the gym 6 weeks now, 1x/wk with an O-lift trainer. First back squats since 1999 - matched PR of 198.
Deadlift - only got 265 (PR'd at 287 last week)
Need to work shoulder press in next week between snatch and c&j work.

Just a thought - CFT is a great way to show overall strength, but it would be nice to be able to compare across variables of BW and height.

CFT/BW provides a basic strength to weight ratio, but does not account for the leverage and distance advantages enjoyed by the height-challenged. Dividing again by height alone isn't so good because it results in weird numbers and gives that variable too much importance.

My suggestion is CFT/BW/BMI*10. This provides a value that allows comparison across a span of weights and heights. People like Josh Everett will still come out on top, but taller folks will receive some credit for moving the mass across a greater distance.

This is a big day for me. I never thought I would ever do 1 rep max lifts again, let alone do squats and deadlifts without a belt. I have skipped them when they have come up before because I was afraid I would injure myself (I had to have major surgery after my last max day 7 years ago). Just to attempt max lifts was huge, but what is even better is that I not only didn't get injured, but I am not even sore. Unbelievable!

Ok, so I'm just now completing my CF total even though it was posted a couple weeks ago. however, our affiliate doesn't just go from the main site WOD's and today was my first chance to go for it. That....and I'm going to level 1 cert on 11/29 and figured one must have a CF total before attending Cert!
Male/31/190#
Crossfitting 1 yr 2 months
Deadlift 320#
Strict Press 175#
Back Squat 305#
Total - 800
I feel like I could've done more on the deadlift and press but didn't want to push it too hard first time around....gives me a goal!
Back squat was right about my max....maybe could've gone another 5ish lbs but I'm happy with the total so far!
Level 1 cert here I come!
