It’s been 8 months since I last did a Crossfit Total. Back in November, I scored 985lb total. I took some time to back off and work on technique, especially squat technique. I bought a copy of Starting Strength by Mark Rippletoe, and used it as a guide to some basic technique.
So I finally did another CFT last night. My total was down by 90 lb – I “only” scored 895. (Yes, I’m being a little smug here.) That was a 325-lb squat, 165-lb shoulder press, and 405-lb deadlift. The good news is, on each exercise, I felt like I could have done more. Now I can start working back up to new personal records on the CFT!
