Crossfit Total

CrossFit Total
The CrossFit total is the sum of the best of THREE attempts at the squat, the press, and the deadlift. All three lifts are done while standing on the floor. Anyone attempting 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.
Welcome to The Box Kasey!!!
Concealed Weapons Class next Saturday, April 6,  9 to Noon, $50. Tell anyone you know who might be interested. Please reserve your spot by calling me at 989-8307. Only 5 spots left.

Two sets, not for time, of:
Bar Muscle-Ups x 3-6 reps
Handstand Walk x 15-20 meters
Butterfly Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups x 12-15 reps
Every minute, on the minute, for 6 minutes:
5 Squat Cleans (155-185/105-135 lb)
Work for speed and efficiency, and then bring breathing and focus back to a calm state before your next set.
Three sets for max reps of:
60 seconds of Shoulder to Overhead (155-185/105-135 lbs)
Rest 2 minutes
Work efficiently with the goal of keeping your reps consistent on all three
sets. Be sure to hit competition standards – stand the weight up so that
you achieve full knee, hip and elbow extension with the barbell directly
over the heels.
Two sets for times of:
Row 500 Meters
135/95 lb Thrusters x 10 reps
Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups x 20 reps
