Crossfit Total – It’s all the wrong way round!

I did a Crossfit Total today, that’s 3 single lifts each of:

  • Back Squat
  • Shoulder (Military) Press
  • Deadlift

Then you add up the weight of the best lift you did in each.

However for some reason, I managed to do an odd thing today: I lifted more on the Back Squat, than I did on the Deadlift! In kilograms my lifts were:

  • Back Squat: 140 – 150(Fail) – 145(=Personal Best)
  • Shoulder Press: 50 – 52.5 – 55(PB)
  • Deadlift: 140 – 150(F) – 150(F)

In pounds my lifts were:

  • Back Squat: 308 – 330(Fail) – 319(=Personal Best)
  • Shoulder Press: 110 – 115.5 – 121(PB)
  • Deadlift: 308 – 330(F) – 330(F)

Giving me a Crossfit Total of 340 kg or 748 lbs. That’s a respectable days lifting I think, but backsquatting more than the deadlift, what’s all that about? My deadlift PB is 160 kg (352 lbs) and I got nowhere near it today.

Just tired I guess? 😕
