CrossFit Total

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.
