Your goal for today’s workout is to find your one repetition max in 3 attempts at each lift. Athletes will perform three warm up sets of 3-5 reps before making 3 attempts at a 1-rep max. Each movement will have a 15-20:00 clock.
Back Squat 1-1-1
Notes: The following is an excerpt from the article describing the CrossFit Total and it’s relative role as a fitness benchmark.
“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.”
