12 WODs of Christmas

Today sees the start of our annual 12 WODs of Christmas. Over the next 2 weeks we will be doing some classic CrossFit Benchmark WODs that will be chosen by our members. As is tradition we will be starting today with the CrossFit Total. It's been 12 months since we last did the CrossFit Total. We've done a lot of hugely productive strength work over the past year and seen members' lifts progress really well. Today's session will be a great opportunity to test how far you have come or, for the newer members, to set yourself some strength benchmarks to work off and improve on throughout 2017.

 

For the next 11 WODs, I will be posting two options on the members Facebook group. You can vote for which WOD you would like to see in the next day's class by commenting on the post. The WOD with the most votes by 9pm each day will be the chosen class workout for the next day! If you're on Facebook and not a member of the members group please let one of the coaches know so we can add you to the group and you can make your vote count.

 

Today's Training

"CrossFit Total"

Three attempts to find a 1 rep max in each of the following three movements:

Back Squat

Shoulder Press

Deadlift

Score is the sum of your maximum lift in each movement.

 

For those who are relatively new to CrossFit or weight lifting this does not need to be an absolute max. We are looking to set some strength benchmarks from which to work off going forward. As always, technical competency should always be the primary goal before increasing load.

 

Compare to 7th December 2015
