Crossfit Total — Back Squats and Shoulder Press

Today was Crossfit Total, but since we don’t have enough time in our class for everybody to get through all three elements (Back Squats, Shoulder Press, and Dead Lifts), we only finished the Back Squats and Shoulder Presses today.

For Crossfit total, you peform one rep of each lift 3 times — taking your 3rd lift as your lift of record. Each rep should be a heavier weight, working up to your PR.

My Back Squats lifts were: 255/275/300. Unfortunately, I think I left a bit on the table as even the 300lbs wasn’t that much of a strain and I was able to explode up pretty easily. I think 350-375 is where I should be right now.

My shouldres press lifts were: 145/155/165. That 165 felt pretty heavy, though I didn’t really pause or struggle on the way up. I think about 185 would have been a strain.


We finished up with 15 Burpees (because today is day 15 of the 100 Day Burpee Challenge).

    Compression and elevation both perform similarly to ice in their ability to restrict excessive, unnecessary inflammation.
