Strength: CrossFit Total – back squat 1RM, overhead press 1RM and deadlift 1RM
I’m sure I’ve said it before but I love doing Total – who doesn’t want to know how heavy they can lift? I set the guys off with their own mobility asking: what do you need to work on? Mostly the athletes went for perfect air squats preparing their inner depth-meters for the first lift.
Since we’ve embarked upon a more regimented strength programme in the name of greater progression – the back squat and overhead press were new to some of the group so we used the session to hammer out some practice on 5’s and 3’s.
So in the excitement of it all I didn’t manage to get some of the 7am totals so please post to comments. The rest were as follows:
Rita: BS 55kg, OHP 28kg, DL 80kg = 163kg/359lbs
Ruairi: BS 130kg, OHP tbc, DL tbc = tbc
Mel: all tbc
Lindsey: all tbc
Helen: total = 175kg/386lbs
Sally: total = 202.5kg/446lbs … get the ol’ girl’s musings on the session here
James: BS 80kg, OHP 45kg, DL 110kg = 235kg/518lbs
Alex: BS 110kg, OHP 57.5kg, DL 145kg = 312.5kg/689lbs
Jenny: BS 77.5kg, OHP 25kg, DL 90kg = 192.5kg/424lbs
Patricia: BS 85kg, OHP 35kg, DL 100kg = 220kg/485lbs
Trev: BS 160kg, OHP 55kg, DL170kg = 385kg/848lbs
Go TEAM indeed!
