Rainier CrossFit hosted the CrossFit Total event. The CFT gives you three attempts at three lifts (squat, press, deadlift). Your heaviest of each are totaled, in pounds, for your score. I squatted 192, pressed 89, and deadlifted 242 for a total of 523. My old total, last August, was 496 so I was happy with yesterday’s result, but I need to practice deadlifting. My deadlift had not gone up.
My squat and press were new personal records. I can now press two-thirds bodyweight overhead–rewarding, because I had specifically been working on that.
My eyes should be looking straight ahead. It sure is hard to break habits such as where your eyes are pointed.
