Hey!
How come that chick isn't naked, or half-naked?
What's this site coming to?
That's it! I'm re-joining Golds.

CF Total again? Wow. Well, I haven't done it the two previous times it was on the site so anxious to see if I can beat 345lb Deadlift PR tomorrow. Any tips to improve my PR????

Comment #2 - Posted by: Jake at February 25, 2014 5:24 PM

365 Backsquat
435 deadlift
185 press

Excited to see Garret and Marcus throw down on 14.1!

Comment #3 - Posted by: Zac Tegeler at February 25, 2014 5:30 PM

Really? Why are we doing the third CrossFit Total in a month and a half? I guess I'll be substituting some other WOD tomorrow... I religiously follow mainsite's WODs but am gonna stray on this one.

Comment #4 - Posted by: DD at February 25, 2014 5:40 PM

@DD, working up to a 1RM press is reason enough to do the Total. The WODs have been on fire but the strict strength component is lacking. Total is awesome.

Comment #5 - Posted by: Gavin at February 25, 2014 5:43 PM

Gavin, valid point, however working up to a 1 RM for me usually consists of a few light reps to warm-up then about 3 attempts at the 1RM. Maybe my "working up to" is lacking but I feel like I need to go for the PR in 2-3 reps or I'm just going to wear myself out and it won't happen... After only doing 3 heavy reps of each of these movements I just don't walk away feeling like I got a great workout.

I'm not saying I don't like the Total, just not so often...

How about doing another WOD either before or after the CFT? no harm in that!

The article makes a very interesting point when it says sports created to help less gifted athletes should be eliminated... If Rich Froning was as good at baseball as he is at crossfit, does anyone think he would still be competing at the crossfit games?

I don't think luge or bobsled should be eliminated - I think they should make the person / team push the sled up the course to the start line, then drive down the course. Best total time up and down wins.

Comment #16 - Posted by: texinma at February 25, 2014 6:53 PM

I understand the concept of 1RM and it's good to get a variation in just not so often. I think getting a baseline set once a month is sufficient then calculate the 1RM based off your working max. That way, you still feel like you got a solid workout in, but can also determine where your gains are.... just another opinion.

Paul Brown Sr. - I understand your comment to an extent, but the Crossfit games are a completely different sport than baseball (unlike ice skating and dancing).
There's plenty of college and pro athletes that are stars in their respective sports that also at some point played another sport but just weren't that good.
True, if Adrian Peterson starting training Crossfit, he would most likely win the games. But the same could be said for many sports. Kobe Bryant playing tennis his whole life would dominate the sport.
My only issue with the article is the idea to get rid of judged sports. Isn't gymnastics one of the foundations of Crossfit? And snowboarding halfpipe fits 9 of 10 of the general physical skills listed, not to mention one of the most popular. And just 2 days ago, Crossfit posted a video on motocross, which is another judged sport.

Comment #20 - Posted by: JJ at February 25, 2014 7:35 PM

DD and Dougnole, you guys trust HQ 99% of the time for your programming. Don't you think they have a reason for the CFT so soon? Maybe they are testing how much stronger you get because of the recent workouts. Did you notice that a lot of the "weird" workouts happened between these last two CFTs? Reconsider.

Completely disagree with that article. Sport is about having fun, it's not always about being at the limit of your body's capabilities. The luge is a fun event and I imagine ice skating is for the participants (not so much myself!).

CrossFit is awesome training for many sports and is fun for the many athletes around the world but sometimes you just want to have fun, jump on a sled and see how fast you can go.

Maybe there should be a Winter CrossFit games where participants climb shards of ice rather than ropes, flip polar bears rather than tyres and swing penguins rather than kettlebells overhead?

Comment #50 - Posted by: Jim R. 51/5'8"/160 at February 26, 2014 6:31 AM

In order to become good at the lift it must be preformed often and under load. These are technical lifts and should be done MORE frequently that CFHQ programs them....if you really want to improve the lift and your overall strength ceiling.

When adding weight: if you squat/DL less than 500 then only add 15 lbs to each side per rep you do. That will help you drill form/technique as you ascend. Once it feels heavy only do singles till you can't perform with that weight. For OHP add no more than 10 lbs at a time unless you are pressing around 200 which case you probably know that best approach already.

If you feel this wasn't enough of a workout for you, add something else but be smart about it. Add some lifts that help strengthen parts of the lifts already done. That's right; hypertrophy! It is actually good for you sometimes. Do DRL's or GHR's or pull-throughs, rows, reverse hypers, dips, something to augment your bodies ability to preform these lifts.

Just don't complain about strength training.... Chances are if you are complaining about it you need improvement at it anyway.

@DD that is not a great way to attempt a 1RM. Similar to a pitcher like Justin Verlander throwing harder in later innings, most people's bodies do not like the shock of warming up their squat at say 135# and then pushing to hit a 400# 1RM. Gradually they feel stronger as the muscles get heated up and warm. That approach would never work for me at least, and the recommendation at my box is to increase by around 20# when you know you're getting close and then hitting your 1RM and adding 10ish from there. Completely agree with @Daniel's approach.

Comment #92 - Posted by: Andrew at February 26, 2014 12:48 PM

If the sport doesn't have an objective measure to determine the winner (time, weight lifted, strokes, distance, etc), then it isn't really a sport. It's an athletic endeavor and takes a high degree of skill (gymnastics, ice skating, half-pipe), but if the winner is determined by a panel of experts, not a sport.

Comment #140 - Posted by: Glorybelle 5'5/135/44/F at February 26, 2014 6:40 PM

This article is a joke right? Crossfit is a company, not a sport. I remember a CF Journal article about how only Crossfit could use the term "Crossfit Games." I have no issues with CFs defense of its trademarks, but for me that is a bigger barrier than any of the Winter Olympics events face to being considered a sport.

Comment #141 - Posted by: John at February 26, 2014 6:55 PM

@Jim #107 (if you read this). I got into powerlifting as a form of cross training and becoming more effective with my lifts. It might not be for everyone but I have solved some problems by using the powerlifting approach of bringing up weaknesses (like my upper back and posterior chain). I believe it has greatly helped me appreciate the squat, DL & OHP because I do them regularly and my CNS has developed to where I can move wod weights with more ease.
- My inspiration was Rob Orlando, Katie Hogan and a couple others.
- great website for training advice and videos: EliteFTS.net
- Mark Bell also has some quality videos coaching lifts as well.
Sounds like you might be on a similar path, don't know if this helps but I hope it does. Happy training...

Not everything needs to be done by CrossFit standards. Eg. Curling is more a game than a sport but may I point out it's called the Olympic Games!
