Well I was gonna lift tomorrow anyways...
I've just received my brand new concept II rower( garage gym).
I'm wondering what will be a competitive time for a 1000m row?
looking for a +750 crossfit total tomorrow!
I love the Total - and I hope to break 700 for the first time.
Love this one...hopefully push past my last...
Hooray for CFT. I can't go heavy yet- but YOU guys can.
Hit this hard ladies. I'll be reading tomorrow, looking for some big numbers. Make me happy :)
I am still amazed at my FRAT Avalanche WOD this AM. My first avalanche was 39:44, second was 37:01 and today was 37:41. Not really any kind of loss, I am not sure how that happened. But who cares? I'll take it.
For the record, since rhabdo hospitalization, discharged on 09/25/09 I have done 5 mini strength WODs and 6 very scaled MetCons. All spaced days apart. So 11 workouts in 5 weeks. No major losses ('cept my dead hang pull ups, I was up to 4 and now i'm struggling to do one. I thought it was due to increased body weight I guess- but I think its really in my head)
Every day, in every way, I'm getting better- still Paleo, still snoozing 8+ hrs, lots of fish oil, lots of good friends keeping my spirits buoyed.
Can anyone tell me if there is a method behind the madness on how these workouts are picked?
I find myself trying to guess the logic, but I have this vision of coach pulling workouts from a bingo machine. Either way, its brilliant - just wondering if there's some logic behind doing CFT this soon after we did it before (other than keep your body/mind guessing).
Im not sure i understand do you just do everything once then your done im kinda new to this any help appreciated thx.
Robert #8 - start with the standard CF Warm Up (check it out on the FAQ).
Then get ready for this WOD. 1 Rep = your max rep. Now, you are new to this so, for goodness sake don't try and max out too soon (unless you are, of course, an experienced lifter). Scale upwards slowly, as and when you are ready...
For a CFer (no point comparing yourself to people who row as their sport, unless you're aiming for that), 3 minutes or a little bit over would be a strong 1K time.
There's been a lot of backlash lately that CF doesn't include enough strength work, my thought is that in response to this, CFT is going to become a monthly event.
If you click on the "CrossFit Total" link at the top, it will take you to a detailed pdf explaining the total. It's exactly as prescribed, don't over-think it, it's like a powerlifting meet.
Man so funny, I did this Monday.....
Back squat 285lb
Scared to go higher on back squat cause I didn't have bumber plates or floor mats so ditching would have been BAD!
First time doing Total...how does this rate
Male 5'11" 198lb 35 years old.
crossfiting at firestation since Dec. 2008
Just moved to Colville WA and was wondering if there was anyone nearby xfitting or aware of a good xfit gym. The gym here is poor and as you know not much is needed but wasjust wondering if anyone else nearby doing WODs. If so shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My wife and I are bboth xfitters and have been for a few years. Thanks a lot all!
you should be rating against your last cft, but it seems you don't have one so maybe it's not time to "rate" yourself, but to set a baseline for future progress recording. as long as you're improving it rates well; if you're not improving it's time to reevaluate.
against others it's too complicated to rate unless you're in a competition where the parameters are set. you will lift more than some and less than others.
anybody Xfitting in costa rica? holding it down in quepos. hot hot hot.
What a great video for the Crossfit kids cert. Outstanding job the Martin's and the whole HQ crew. People need to get to a Crossfit Kids Cert.
Just did it Saturday. Skipped it the time before because I was in the middle of a strength cycle anyway and wanted to finish before trying CFT again
BS 325 (+20 from last)
SP 170 (+10 from last)
DL 405 (unchanged)
Total 900 even
Max DL is still 420, but can never hit it on a CFT. Guess low-bar squats fry the PC. I think I had another 5-10 lbs in the squat easy but that was 3rd rep so I quit.
Dave WilliamsTX - just since the last CFT there have been a Back Squat 5x5 and a Deadlift 1x7 so plenty of reason to try heavy again.
PR! PR! PR!
Press - 160 (PR by 20)Failed 170
Squats - 425 (tied PR)Failed at 435
Deadlifts - 425 (10 below PR) Failed at 440
Last CF total was 925 3 months ago and 850 6 months ago.
Goal was to break 1000 and I DID IT!
The coolest part of this whole sha-bang we call kool-aid..UH..I mean Crossfit is here I am 37, I am able to squat more than I have in my entire life (including years on ski team) and I am dead-lifting more than I ever have. And last week I just ran the fastest 2 miles I have run in years. (oh did I mention I use to be an ultra runner about 35lbs ago?)
I love this stuff!
Great Article on CROSSFITCHRON.COM on means to achieve athletic success. Lindsey (5th fittest at Games) and Web Smith's website.
since we just had cft 3 weeks ago i decided to go for broke on all lifts...results were mixed
bs - 355 pr
sp - 175 f
dl - 475 f
mental block on sp, and th ebar was too smoth on the dl, couldn't get a good grip
not going to add up the cft this time, still 955 from last time
Ah I love the CF Total workouts the most! Get some.
Keep it up girlie
so glad to hear your high spirits, puts a smile on my face just before bed
Stop thinking, Start doing
Crap! I went in the wrong order! Oh well...
SP: 135(PR), 145F, 140F
BS: 275, 285F (saved the energy for DL)
DL:410(PR+5Lb!), 415F, 415F
I was feeling real good for 415... I knew I could do it but I didn't have the energy at the end and my right grip kept on giving up. Either then that I'm happy with what I've done!
After that I was feeling good about the DL so I did 5 rep of 315 and 10 of 225 then I was done..
"PROPS TO THA FRAT!!!"
P.S. It's a 15Lb increase from the last CFT but who's keeping track...
90kg Dead Lift
60 kg Shoulder Press
i busted my knee the other day & it got worse diong that Squat couldn't bend roperly for Dead Lift.
Way to go, L'il Pony! Looking forward to reading your full-time results again soon!
CFTotal last time was 785#, but I've PR'd Squats and Deadlifts since... Will be interesting to see if there has been a strength improvement since Oct 13. Will post this afternoon..
Pure upper body WODs needed
Hey guys, can any of you suggest some good, pure upper body WODs or point me to an area of the site that has some?
I've re-injured my knee and have to stay off my feet for my exercise for the next month, so can't run, row, swim, lift, press etc, but I'm determined not to fall back into bodybuilding stuff, even for a couple of weeks
Clearly, there's Lynne, weighted pull ups and lots of combinations of dips, push ups, sit ups, pull ups, knees to elbows etc but I'd love to keep the variety if possible and after 5 days, I'm already running out of ideas.
If any of you have WODs you've used yourselves or that you've used for your clients, I'd be very grateful to receive them
thanks for any help you can give me
im gonna murder this one
Love this workout
SP-170 (improved from 165)
BS-315 (improved from 235)
DL-490 (improved from 315)
CT-875 (difference of 160)
On some days I don't feel as though I get as hard a workout as i should be doing. Should I go up in weight on the days I feel this way or stick to what the workout says? I'm particularly enjoy the workouts that have me going non-stop and have several different exercises in it.
I remember this one just destroyed the upper body.
Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
Handstand push-ups 5 reps
Bench press 135 pounds, 10 reps
Push press 95 pounds, 15 reps
Dips 20 reps
BS 300 (+15 from last)
SP 135 (-5 from last, damnit!)
DL 400 (+15 from last)
CFT 835 (+25 from last)
i blame the halloween workout for a sore upper body--didn't do it on halloween; did it on the 1st.
BS-up five pounds
SP-same no change need to work on this
DL-up ten pounds. tried 300lbs could not get it.
All lifts are 100%Raw
Press: 75kg/165 pounds
Back Squat: 140kg/308 pounds. PR by 13 pounds, my first time over 300, and my first time getting twice by bodyweight!!!
Deadlift: 170kg/374 pounds. This bar had the worst grip I've ever encountered. It was like a freshly waxed car. Might explain my 11 pound unstrapped loss as I had a total grip failure.
Addition to Comment #36
My total was 847 pounds or 385 kg.
Squat 295 (PR)
press 145 lbs
DL 340 lbs (pr)
CFT 780 lbs at 165 body weight
need to work on shoulder press this month
Squat: 435 -PR
Total: 955 - PR
Press was 20 pounds short of PR of 175. Worked HSPU last night and failed on 170. Couldn't do much after that.
did triples instead
5 sets 115 x3
5 sets 185 x3
2 sets 315 x3
3 sets 275 x3

Shoulder is still a problem after rotator cuff surgery in March
Deadlift 315 (wod weight)
shoulder press 160
squat stopped at 315
total: a poor 790...both DL and Squat should be heavier.
added bench - 250
BS: 260 (PR)
DL: 275 (same as last time, which was PR)
SP: 120 (same as last time - PR)
Then did something bad to my neck while stretching. Waiting for the IB to kick in.
While looking for a rope to climb last week I mentioned it to a friend who is a principal of a school. He got me a used rope and said he could get a couple if he wanted as they don't use them any more. Try getting hold of a teacher you may be surprised.
BS: 185 (PR)
SP: 75 (just can't get it past half way w/80)
DL: 215 (tied recent PR)
Last CFT was only 441 on 10/14 & CFT on 9/7 was 415. Really excited about my rapid improvement.
Back Squat: 335(PR)
Shoulder Press: 170
subbed front squats
BS - 300
SP - 140 (-5)
DL - 370 (PR -5)
total = 805 (-10)
My first time trying a one rep max. Died on the squats, luckily the gym has a cage so on my final squat I just went all the way down to the ground and left the bar hanging, could've died :/
I did them in the wrong order, and dropped the bar on my first deadlift, it slipped and everyone stared at me, but I managed
SP - 140lbs
BS - 253lbs
DL - 264lbs
Total - 657
Not bad for a 17 year old who doesn't do sports ;p
No racks in my basement gym so I have to clean and jerk all my weights. So, can't do CFT
5x15 @ 135
65, 75, 85, 95, 95 (all pounds)
paid real attention to form from start to finish
I know this is low but my max press is only 125 so I was pretty happy. And other then my wife and daughter, my happiness is what counts.
ran out of time for DL's
Front Squat Total:
Front Squat: 275 (PR)
Just didn't have a deadlift today. First two lifts felt strong though. Not sure what was up with that, but considering I just deadlifted 445 on Thursday, I'm not too worried about it.
First CFT since May 2009. Getting back in slow and steady for feeling good:
BS: 205, 225, 245 - PR 255
SP: 135, 155, 160(f) - PR 165
DL: 185, 205, 205(f) - PR 275

DL=425#-PR(attempted 445# failed)
DL: 425 (PR)
Total: 905 (PR)
Back squat, 1 rep
Shoulder Press, 1 rep
Deadlift, 1 rep
I have a question i think my body doesn't work well, my PR for one rep DL is 360, and my PR for one rep BS is only 190, and i see that a lot of ppl have their BS with in range of the BS any advice as far as gettin my BS up?
Last time around did 815lb
Shooting for a total of 850 today.
Never could get the crossfit games video to work yesterday. Anyone else have an issue with it or another link that works?
I broke 500lbs in the Deadlift today!!!
BS 365 SP 185 DL *505* Total = 1055
Back squat 100kg
schoulder press 50kg

What a great workout today... first CF total, so I guess they are all PR's...
BS-315; SP-145; DL-325; Total-785
Not the WOD for today but did this at 7am this morning, 5 sets of the following for time
12 Clean and press
9 hang and clean
using a 35Kg barbell set up time= 17:34
Back Squat - 355lbs.
Shoulder Press - 145lbs
Deadlift - 315lbs
Total = 815
Higher than last time, better squat, worse deadlift
whenever I click on 4.10 of the FAQs it goes to the journal. Trying to find more info on the CFT. Any suggestions? Is the SP using no legs?
790 last time, and I had a lot left. Today is PR day for all 3! Give 'em Hell!!
Total= 765 (PR)
Previous best was 725
Shooting for 800 next time
SP 200 lbs
DL 365 lbs.
Glad this one came up:
Press: 165 (shoulder issues, dammit--down from PR)
Took it a little easy today...really wanted to focus on press. barely, barely mustered 135, and on my second attempt. 140 is pr. Been a while since I've pressed. Humbling.
Still can't figure out why people continue to do CFT in a sequence other than the prescribed one of Squat-Press-Dead.
I mean, do you do pullups before thrusters when doing Fran?

More detailed reply
Crossfit total was started ebcause many of the top athletes in the games had been doing CF for less than a year and had came from a strength lifting background. Crossfit decided that strength in CF was low and that increasing it would create better.....competitors....at the games and presumably elsewhere. Also from many people outside the lack of strength being bad for most athletes had been a be negative things said about CF. Now with CF:Total it encourages the srength. Just so you know the average "active" male is about 175 lbs, they say that an athlete in most sports should have at least 1xbodyweight in bench, and 1.5 bodyweight in deadlift and squat. Now in CF we shoulder press but on the "sports average" the total for the average male in america would be 700. That is a base. Clearly at crossfit we'd hope to be above the base average, having shoulder press rather than bench lowers our number a touch but we should still have a close starting base.
then tried bench and prayed for my shoulder
I ove CF:Total, my favorite thing to hit CF in a while. I hope they get some special workouts for heavy O lifts for that explosive power against a lot of resistance, to explode up under great stress. Some days I do heavy C&J and heavy Snatch on my own call but I'd assume CF workouts are better programmed than the stuff I make up.
P.S. I never understood the hate on the bench. They say it takes equip so it is less natural, yet a C2, rings, o bars, GHD and bumper plates are all expensive specialized equip. and most pushing I do against resistance in real live is closer to straight away from my body more than straight above my head.
M/63/196- No squat rack yet (got the materials, but haven't put them together yet) so heavy squats are out--subbed 3 rounds of
5 muscle-ups (toes on ground- still working the progression)
5 karate kata
last month got 665 and that was my first time for CFT. after class im going to try to get over 700.
this is also the first time since doing CF that a wod has repeated itself- so lets see how much progess i've made
Oh, I so thought about doing this WOD with 1 arm..would add an element of "varied" and humor for sure!
Rt. shoulder rehab going well~can get to 90 degrees out front and to the side with minimal pain and can lift arm over my head without assistance of the wall or my "good arm".
did 4 rounds of 25 jumping squats~rest 1 minute between rounds
did 10 rounds of sprint tenth of a mile on treadmill/10 GHD sit ups
BS 295, SP 140, DL 388
dl: 210(ties PR)

Doug and Shelby to do theirs later today.
Fit Mom, great to see you are making a quick recovery. You will be back 100% in no time Kim.
First time doing CFT
780! PR by 35 lbs!
MEBB is working like gangbusters. Thanks Coach Rut.
Squat: 280 (PR by 10 lbs)
Press: 160 (PR tie)
Deadlift: 340 (20 below PR)
Did this at Camp Taji.
CFT is a good day for me, it shows where I am weak (upper body) and reminds me that no matter how much I add the pile is always deeper and there is a new goal awaiting me around the corner....
CF Total= 665
Just started Crossfit today. Starting with the CFT. Did 925 at 238# and 50 years old.
PR by 40 lb!
I could only do 65lb shoulder press last time as well, although this time I got the bar a little higher. I feel like I'm making no progress in this area at all week after week :(
Squat: 235lbs (PR)
OHP: 155lbs (PR)

Do you have a journal subscription.
the article called "cross fit while recovering" may help to inspire you. also check out the gymnastics website drillsandskills.com for more ideas.
BS - 245, no gain
SP - 115, no gain
DL - 300, no gain
On a bit of a high now as target was to break 1000 - turns out I shattered it. Gonna pay tomorrow though
To #30... Try JT as a great upper body workout:
3 rounds - 21, 15, then 9 reps of:
Scale as needed...
#97 what did you do to your shoulder???
405# Back Squat 455# Partial
135# Shoulder Press
15lbs improvement over last time.
TM - 223
(M/23/165lbs - 5'7")
squat - 375lbs
press - 165lbs
deadlift - 405lbs
Total - 945
total 875 down again, is anyone else finding no strength gains. I have been on this workout for a year now, and even though I have had gains in other areas I have noticed no improvement in these three lifts, I have not gone up one pound in any in over ONE YEAR! I used to squat 440(x2), dead 485. Any advice would be welcome. That would put me in 1100 range. HELP!!!!!!
Back squat: 140 PR
Shoulder Press: 100 PR
Deadlift: Skipped. Back still hurts from last time I did deadlifts.
Logic behind CFT isn't accurate. It was started before 2007 CF Games (1st one). Post by #76 Maruf has a link to CF Journal article by Rip from 12/1/06 describing CFT.
While it may have been instituted due to need for strength in CF training it had nothing to do with CF games or results. I believe the total was one of the competitions in '07 Games.
Male, 29yo, 155lbs
First time and hand no spotters so probably could have done a little more but safety is kinda important.
Squat - 325
S/ Press - 165
Deadlift - 305
total 795 lbs
Max have generally stayed the same the past few months.
#119 I think that those are good numbers considering that you probably have total fitness now. I have the same problem. I used to do more weight , but I have maintained strength along with everything else by doing crossfit ( started one year ago ). I am lighter about 185 and have to struggle to do the weights that I did when I was 215lbs, but I feel more total fitness now. I did not do anything but lift weights then. I don't know much, but I hope this helped a little.
New PR for everything :)

Congrats to Luke AFB on the opening of their new Combat CrossFit course! Thanks for leading the functional fitness revolt and thrashing the "run, push-up, sit-up, lather, rinse, repeat" model we've been under for far too long. TRAIN HARD OR DIE SOFT!

comment #125 CW
Thanks for answering, it is always nice to know I am not alone. My bodyweight is also 185 and was when I set my pb's way back. I realize being 39 now as opposed to being 26 when I did pr makes a difference. My total fitness is definitely up, even though I was never out of shape this is another level beyond where I was. Don't get me wrong, I love crossfit - just doesn't seem to impact these 3 lifts like I thought it would. Again, thanks for your input, another thing I love about the crossfit community - the support!!!
Squat 335 (PR+20); SP 155(=PR); DL 405 (PR is 435). Total 885, PR is 900.
Kind of a sucky day ... just seemed to run out of energy after starting off very well. Could be nutrition, my meals have been all over the map lately. I was especially depressed about the DL. But, I am happy about the squat, so at least there is one positive thing about the day.
Thanks Cookie! Awesome job, to Steph too. It's awesome to see girls pushing such heavy weight!

My once a month post
Every time CFT comes up I cringe. After 8 years of powerlifting competitions, constant cycling to increase one rep max, I never have the motivation or desire to go after that one rep max.
Dont get me wrong, I still have good strength.
So I devised my own workout for CFT days:
CFT 3 Bars of Death:
Shoulder press 95#
Rounds of 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
For time: 25 minutes
My body weight this am was 146#
Squats need to increase, working through a bad knee.
Shoulders ache from years of benching, getting better.
As one ages, strenght is important but so is fitness. I am trying to find that happy middle.
Total 465Kg = 1023 pounds
First Crossfit Total
Marine Officer age 28 weight 170
PR up 30lbs from last CFT
Total was 865
concentrated more on the squat form using the wall ball to get the full squat.
still don't have the equipment for cft
did a cf endurance wod:
hang power clean
then five rounds of
5 split cleans @ 60kg
10 box jumps - 60cm
DL: 445 (pr by 40)
SQ: 315 (same as last)
SP: 170 (pr by 10)
then, 200 double unders, 1 mile run,
for time. lovely.
OK, so I got lab results back during my physical at work today and after eating regular cheese, whole milk, 3-4 whole eggs wk, regular plain yogurt for a year the results are...my cholesterol dropped 30 pts! LDL was 71, which didn't change from last year, my HDL is was dropped! Total went from 198 to 168! Goes to show saturated fat isn't really bad, you just need to bust your....doing crossfit to be healthy!
107.5 - 46 - 150
CFT = 303.5 (667.7lbs)
Squat = 485 (220kg)
Shoulder press = 220 (100kg)
Deadlift = 396 (180kg)

Boooom!! New PR!

Any advice on increasing my squat weight stuck around 365-375?

First time doing the Crossfit Total
Back squat = 295lbs
Shoulder press = 105lbs
Deadlift = 245lbs
Total = 645lbs
Back squat: 255lb
backsquats: 335 (315)

deadlift: 335 (325)
total: 815 (775)
not expecting this type of change after the last CFT!
CFT: 645 (585 last time)
Grrr. The gym was PACKED, so I couldn't do deadlifts, and the scale was broken, so I couldn't weigh myself.
BS 215 (Maybe didn't get down far enough)
SP 115 (Maybe broke the plane)
DL 305 (Guessed based on the last time we did deadlift singles)
635 PR, but highly questionable.
=( im stuck at 65 for shoulder press, just can't seem to get out of that rut. But I got 200 for deadlift, so im pumped!!
BS 185 PR (up 5 from previous)
SP 75 (down 5 from previous)
DL 240 (PR) (up 10)
tested out a couple other lifts afterward:
bench press: 165 (would have tried more with spotter)

bs-342(all the weight i have)
Back Squat 225
Shoulder Press 135
At my frame this is weak. It is however, better results in 1 month of CF than in 8 years of muscle mag lifting.
Shoulder Press - 145
Back Squat - 295
my shoulders and knees still hurt from snatches and running. Love it.

Back Squat - 245#
Handstand Pushup (198#) - x2 (max)
Deadlift - 435# PR
with a cycle of 3 other guys and me
25 GHD Situps

BS= 365 (0)
SP= 165 (+5)
DL= 405 (+20)
Total= 935 (910 last month)
Squat and press not improving as I would like.
No CFT today, fasted yesterday for lab work today. Did CFWU then light Back squats, Shoulder press and Deadlift.
It's been about a year now that I've been in the gym on a regular basis. Six months of that has been CrossFit. CrossFit is the reason I enjoy training and train consistently. A year ago, my goals were things like lose 30# and have a six-pack. Now my goals are how much can I lift and how fast can I go. This is much more fun. Today was my first CrossFit Total. As weak as these numbers are, I was much weaker a year ago. GOAL: break 800 by 2011.
Squat - 225 pr
Press - 130 pr
Deadlift - 290 pr
Total - 645
BS 220 220 230f

DL-315 (325 fail)
BS- 180 (smith machine)
SP- 220 (press machine)
No dumping at globo gym. BS and SP weights are plate weight only.
I scraped some skin off my right shin on one DL attempt, is this a sign of poor form?

Plan to do 'total' on friday 6/10/09 for first time
Last year before my shoulder repair surgery (Superspenatus reattachment):
Total = 1015
13 months post-surgery ... tonight:
Total = 950
Recovery level ~ 93.6%
Still waiting on my squat racks from Iron Mind...
Barn still under construction...
Futz around with some DL's in the basement.

Well I am just getting back to lifting and I have chose this site to help me stay motivated.
I am 28 yrs old, male, 190 lbs, 5-9.
135lbs- Shoulder Press

SP = 105 pr
BS = 215 pr
DL = 275 pr
Total = 595

Got cocky on the DLs and jumped from 315# to 350. Oops.
BS: 520 (PR)
DL: 525 (PR)
Total: 1250 (PR)
No CFT today. Worked on technique changes from Barbell Cert. Squat is the biggest change and feels like it will respond good. Tied pr in deadlift. Press sucks big time. Closer grip hurts shoulders and I can't press $hit. Hopefully this is a case of one step back, two steps forward...
Where are all the totals? Don't people like doing strength work here?
Total = 815
Total = 615
total: a pitiful 715
strength to weight ratio: 4.61
My FIRST time doing this WOD
Press - 80# (PR for us weaklings)
Squat - 175# (Didn't have a spotter so stopped
there) HEAVY for me.
DL - 170#
My first total.
total: 517.5 (PR by 47.5# from Sept)

DL - 335
Back Squat - 405#
Shoulder Press - 155#
Deadlift - 455#
Total - 1015#
First total after surgery. The shoulder held up well, but my press is down 40# and my deadlift is down 80# from my PR. The squat didn't come down too much, just about 20#.
BS: 290, SP: 160, DL: 335, Total = 785

DL: 199 lbs
SP: 71 lbs (based on 2 reps at 69.5 using Brzycki equation)
BS: 111 lbs
I more of less follow Greg Amundson's warmup. Performed a few with just bar, then did 22's, then 33's, then 44's, then added 22's, 33's and so on.
DL- 370 (x2)
Finally dead lifted twice my body weight.
bs 126kg pr first in a year
dl 190kg but losing back-- probably need more squat
#114~ I had bone spurs in my right shoulder. Dealt with cortisone shots to the AC joint Feb-June 2009 to get me through the CF Games Qualifier and the CF Games. Oct. 20 had the surgery to cut the spurs away from the clavicle.
#157~ my advice is to buy Mark Rippetoe's "Starting Strength" book and do his strength programming. Just my 2 cents.
Squat = 235 PR by 10 lbs
Shoulder Press = 145 down 10 lbs
DL = 315 same as last heavy DL
Total = 695
Improved only 10 lbs. Was shooting for over 700 but I actually lost 10 lbs on the shoulder press. Just recovering from bad chest cold, energy not quite what it needed to be to push the heavy weight.
27/M/150 First Time Maxing Out
Squat-235 Could go higher, no bumpers/spotter
As Rx: BS 275 + SP 160 + DL 345 = 780 (intermediate).
Kept my resolution not to do any heavy back squats or deadlifts this month, in an effort to rehab my low back injury.
In order to distract myself from adding on more weight, I videoed each set and watched while I rested. First time I ever did that and learned a lot.
Squat=285lbs (20lbs increase)
Press=155lbs (9lbs increase)
DL=365lbs (10lbs increase)
CF Total=805lbs (39lbs increase)
Press: 155 failx2
DL: 335, quit while I was ahead of lower back
Squat: 275, deep squat
during top3, chavez spot
Press-165 down 5 lbs from last cft (due to being too sore)
Previous cft was 860ish I believe:)
245 back squat
150 shoulder press
First time lifting heavy in a little over 6 weeks due to 3 fractures in my back. It was a little difficult going in today to do this knowing how much I could possibly have lost during this time off, and while I am thankful I can still walk and lift, it's hard to see everything you worked for, take such a hit. It's comforting to have others out there who are recovering from injuries that go in day in and day out to do the wods even if it's not as rx'd or what's posted. It helps me work through mine too!!! So thanks!!
Shoulder press: 70 *off pr by 2
Back Squat: 200 *pr by 10!!!
Deadlift: 205 *off pr by 30 :(
Total: 475 off pr two days before injury by 25
Really sad to have lost 30 pounds on my deadlift but on the bright side a 200 pound squat was one of my goals for this year so yay!! Also the last two days I have gotten my jumping muscle up and I am getting dangerously close to the real thing!!!! So pumped!!!!
All I want for Christmas is my muscle up!! LOL
that's up 100 pounds since the last one about three weeks ago.
the last cft was done only days after i went on a twenty-eight day water fast.
Awesome day for the total, pr'd all movements.
Felt uber strong today
My first CFT ever! CFing for 3 weeks now.
Squat: 200 lbs
Press: 95 lbs
Deadlift: 245 lbs
Total: 540 lbs
strictest form I've ever done.
press 150 PR!
I wasn't happy with my performance this morning so....
I'm a little happier now.
Back Squat: 330
Shoulder Press: 145
First CFT. Started with 5 minutes on the rope.
BS: 215 DL: 265 SP: 115 TOTAL: 595
Followed by 60 pullups, 60 renegade pushups (25 lb dumbbells), 60 ball slams (25 lbs), 50 regular pushups, and 50% of a bottle of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay.
23 / M / 5'9" / 130lb
My second crappy CFT in a row. I keep messing up my form on the squat and failing the lift. Press weight is down and I had to do a fourth try to get it there. Hardly any progress on the deadlift.
And I'm already much too thin and can't stop losing weight! Ahh!
On the other hand, I've just recently come off a month of being sick, so it's probably stupid to expect too much.
Total: 640 a PR
Back Squat 305 (got dq'ed by guys at 315)
Push Press 125 (no explaining this is awful)
dead lift 360
790 I just can't break 800

SP - 130
DL - 245
Total - 620
Did a 1,000 meter swim before WOD.
Tabata row, 1035m
DL 315x3. But no time for CFT as usual
First CFT, long time since I lifted heavy
BS = 185
SP = 135
DL = 250
Total = 570
Warmed up on all lifts first
Lowered weight slightly to focus on form:
Squat - (295#, 305#) 315# (missed PR by #15)
SP - (145#, 155#, 165# [F]) 155# (missed by by 5#)
DL - (350#, 365#) 375# (missed PR by 20#)
Although I missed all my PR's on weight I know that I nailed my form - especially my depth - on this lifts. I'll start from this point next time work back up to my weights but this time with good form!
BS - 280#
SP - 160#
DL - 335#
Total - 775#
forgot to put my total: 875# (missed PR by 40#)

DL: 380 - 390 - 400
Total: 850 (off PR of 860 by 10#)
Squat was WEAK today (20# off PR of 305). May be because of doing Snatch/OHS/Run yesterday as well as only a few hours sleep due to school. Either way I need to start working on this in supplementation.
My Press seems to be baselining at 165, haven't had an progress in forever. At least it's not regressing either though. Supplementing these would also do me well.
Was happy DL stayed at my PR. Thought it would go down but it's remained with me. I should be able to do 410 i think. No tape this time either, and no rips/tears :)

I think Coach wanted to see if the recent workouts were improving the strength of people following the main site WOD's over the last couple of weeks. In my case, yes they have. I'm up 30lbs over my best CFT from back in July. I PR'd on D/L by 20lbs, and upped my shoulder press by 5 (not so much but still improved). I wonder how much better it would be if I did Zone Paleo....?
Total=715 (finally broke 700!)
Hoping to better my first CFT
Should I be using straps for my DLs? Do they really help increase the potential weight lifted by reducing grip failure? Please Help!
150# mil press (155# very close)
690# totarl (pr 700)

Been fitting the cross for about a month now and really enjoying it!
325 Back squat
My wife set all pr's as well!
105 Back Squat
She's only been crossfitting for 3 months. In the 3 months, she went from 123# to 114#, dropped 10% body fat and has gotten so much stronger. We zone all week except for 2 cheat meals. She's a champion. Plus, she's a great workout partner. 3 months ago I had a mental block trying to deadlift 400#. Could do 395 but could not pull 400. Yesterday I went for 405 and she was right there cheering me on. Got it no problem which prompted me to go for 425. I was so pumped when I got to full hip extension. The bar was hanging on my fingertips but I got it to the top and lowered it down. Can't wait til the next time. 1000 is my next goal!
going to try this w.o.d. today very excited!
btw, its funny how theres alot more posts on w.o.d.s that contain something to do for time or any metcon, but when it comes to max effort lifts, not too many people commnent. Everybody wants to be fit but aint nobody wanna lift heavy ass weight!
Did last night.

Off topic, but have to share a story. I have been trying to get people involved where I live and finally had my brother in law, oil field worker thinks he is tough sh::, and buddy who is 6'3" 265 very built. Both of them always give me hell and thought these workouts were bogus. They joined me last night and I put them through, 4 pull ups, 8 hand stand push ups modified on a 4 ft box, and 12 thrusters at 95#, as many rounds for 20 minutes. at three minutes the big guy laid it down and at 8 minutes the cocky oil field guy laid it down, while I 6'290 been doing crossfit for 8 weeks kicked their ASS. I loved every minute of it. I have gone from 3 pull ups to 15 and did my last set of 5 on squats last week at 365. Just wanted to say that I am hooked and glad to be apart of this special thing called CROSSFIT!!!!
285, 155 (PR), 395
Not my best work, but finally went through the 150 glass ceiling that had been bothering me for a while.

Not my best work, but not too bad either. Felt fairly weak in my legs. Need to get back on the dedicated cycle. Also, felt really good to break the 150# glass ceiling on the press.
BS - 245#
OP - 90#
DL - 265#
Actually down about 50 pounds in each after following crossfit for 3 months. I was powerlifting before that so I have lost a bit of weight.
Comment #295 - Posted by: Bean
For preventing grip failure on deads, I turn my hands in opposite directions on the bar, this allows the bar to twist into each hand. It works really well for me.

While reading through the posts, seeing both exclamation at new PR's and dismay at totals that show no improvement, I'm stuck at what is clearly missing. That would be a serious inquiry as to why some folks have a stronger squat than DL, or why some folks who excel at these two, have quite weak SP's.
Doesn't it occur to many that there exists a balance between these three lifts that is also an important segment to consider? Isn't balanced strength and ability what CF is all about?
Squat 305lbs not the best of form
Press 115lbs mad I couldn't get 125lbs....
Dead 325lbs same as usual
Squat is way up and Deadlift could be higher if I had additional weight plates but stuck on Press

Down slightly from last time's CFT (822). I was so close on the first attempt at 310. I thought I had it, but got stuck halfway up, and couldn't push through. Happy about the shoulder press PR. I was pretty tired at deads, but I came very close on the first attempt at 381. I was up, but not fully locked out, and I was starting to lose my grip on the weight, so I had to come back down.

Just start CF this week. Been running a day behind to make sure I know what I am doing before I go to the gym. Lovin it so far. Used to weightlift all the time been trying to get back into the past few years but it has been too repetitive and it was hard to stay interested
Everything was way off today, not sure why. Haven't been sleeping well lately.
WOD - (whoops! bench instead of shoulder; also, ran outta time on DL--had to instruct a class)
Squat = 200 (190 in June)
Press = 70 (75 in June)
Deadlift = 210 (200 in June)

Improvements in all but Press. I accidentally did them out of order and did the press last which is probably why I couldn't push up more weight. My lower back was just done.

BS-285, SP-155, DL-365, Total=805...Working back up to where I was before CFFB, so I'm being strict on the back. Also, My SP has not increased much in the last year and a half when I started CF, even after form re-toolings based on CF vids. Might have to peruse the forums for any guesses.

I know this is a late post, but I did this wod on wednesday and meant to post then but forgot.
Did this on 10/13 and got a total of 780, which was a PR for me at the time. Since that time, I took on a strict zone diet, while doubling the fat blocks since I am not in need of dropping any weight, and when I did this again on wednesday, I totalled out at 810!
P: 165 (from 160)
BS: 295 (from 285)
DL: 350 (from 335)
A 30lb increase! I believe I could have gotten 300 on the back squat, but attemtped only 295 on the last allowable lift, and didn't want to get greedy. On 10/13, I attempted 340 on the DL but couldn't get it.
It was a pleasent surprise, so I just thought I would share these results with you guys, just in case anyone is on the fence about changing their diet.

Can't do lots of the wods at the sport centre because of a ban on Snatch and C & J or any variation. Sooo fed up with all the back stabbing and bureaucracy. I've lost any enthusiasm I had. Know I need to work round it but the whole thing is just wearing me down.
Not so much fun.
felt like getting some reps in..

The last time this came up, I was afraid to even try max on BS and DL. Not so any more, cant wait for this to come up again and really see a difference. I don't see an 800 coming too fast, but I'll plan on a 750.
Missed a couple wods, so today caught up a bit....

Huge increase (nearly 20 kg since last tested) on the BS and very happy to catch the new DL PB on CFT. Need to find how to increase the SP ... just does not seem to budge.
Expected more from the squat. :-/
first cft so not disappointed
CFWU - 3. Reg. Superman. Burgener. 2 min DU.
Think depth pretty good on BS. No one to verify. Possibility an inch or so lower. Good job using hips.
DL: Got a little lower in stance. Seemed to help engage hips & keep back & abs tight.
See 6/29 for further history

Loving the new form on squats. Following Rippletoe as much as I can. I don't think I am as strong as use to be but will be as I maintain form.
Deadlift was disappointing but grip held up.
I felt good. I thought numbers would be higher. They will be next time!

Warming up shoulder press felt weak, so I wimped out and lowered the weight 8lbs, otherwise as above. Squat - 185lb, press - 85lb, deadlift 235lb.
Funny how the first round took under 2 minutes, yet the 2nd round squats took that long alone.

I guess its pretty apparent where my weakness is. Its really bizarre that I can dead 430 but only manage to SP 145 on a good day. Oh yeah, I had to do the CFT in reverse order due to people using equipment. I am curious what the score would have been like when done as perscribed.
This was first CFT. I'm not proud of it, but I feel like I could get 600 pretty easily. I could have gone higher on Squats.
