WOD for Thursday 10/4/2012

WOD

CrossFit Total

This workout is set up similar to a powerlifting meet.  You have 3    attempts each to lift as much weight as possible for the following lifts:

Back Squat, 1 rep

Shoulder Press, 1 rep

Deadlift, 1 rep

So, knowing that you only have 3 attempts per exercise, choose your loads wisely.

You might want to open with a previous PR or the heaviest weight that    you KNOW you can lift.  This is a security measure in case your next 2    don’t happen.  For the second and third attempts, go for it.

Testimonials

*Well, maybe its an addiction. Almost four months ago, July 1st to be exact, I decided to get my health back in order and get myself into better shape. I joined an intense (extreme?) workout regiment called CrossFit. For those that have spoken/seen me in that last few months, they know I cannot shut up about it. Well, one of the guys in my "Box" wrote an interesting piece on his website regarding his first 3 months as a CrossFit member. His articulate article puts everything I feel/experienced about CrossFit in one piece. If you have time and/or are thinking of getting back into shape, or if you are physically fit and are looking for a new physical challenge, I highly suggest you read the article.

November 1st will be my 120th day as a CrossFit member. To date, I am just shy of losing 30lbs. The weight loss, however, doesn't tell the whole story. The amount of lean muscle mass put on has been equally impressive. I hope to hit my goal by next week.

PS. My wife joined as well for moral support & in the process has gotten hooked too.*
