“New CrossFit Total”
– 1RM Overhead Squat
– 1RM Bench Press
– 1RM Clean
I was looking forward to this one.. It has been a long time since I tested out one rep maxes. I actually never tried it for the overhead squat as I am just happy to even do it with the bar hehe. I managed 65 lbs properly. I also did 2 reps with 70 lbs, but not sure if I went low enough.. So I’m going to set it at 65 lbs for now.
The bench press!! Last time I tried 1rm was before I started the Wendler schedule in July and it was 95 lbs. That felt so light now!! In the end I set my new pr at 115 lbs. I also tried 125 lbs and ALMOST got it. My spotter helped me in the end, he started helping me a bit premature I felt because I feel like maybe I would have gotten it.. but when I tried a second time I completely failed lol. Next time I should try 120 though.. pretty sure that I could have hit that. But ya, now my new pr is 115 lbs, which I’m still happy with :D.
After that it was time for the power clean. My PR for that one was 120 lbs which I set not too long ago (November 30), but I didn’t manage 120 lbs this time. I didn’t have much time as I took a bit longer on the bench press.. but managed a 115 lbs.. then failed twice on 120 lbs. So no new PR there.
– Death By Burpees
Was actually looking forward to this one as well. I knew my burpees had improved so was sure that I would improve my score. I didn’t remember my old score though. In the end I came to the 15th rep in the minute I had to do 16. Such a shame I couldn’t squeeze that last one in to be able to go into the next minute!! Was still an improvement though from 65 total reps last August to 71 total reps now. :)
