"CrossFit Total" via CrossFit Main Site Daily WOD
- "CrossFit Total"
- Back squat, 1 rep
- Shoulder press, 1 rep
- Deadlift, 1 rep
In the “CrossFit Total” WOD, athlete gets 3 attempts at each lift. Weight must increase after each successful attempt at each movement. Weight may not be decreased after first attempt. A failed rep counts as an attempt.
There is no time limit for each lift or for the length of the session in which they are all performed, but they must all be performed during one session (i.e., athlete cannot leave the area to rest or perform other activities between the three lifts).
Beginning athletes should treat today as an opportunity to practice and get comfortable with heavy lifts. Consider the effects of yesterday’s long row and adjust loading accordingly.
Back squat 3-3-1-1 reps
Shoulder press 3-3-1-1 reps
Deadlift 3-3-1-1 reps

The CrossFit Total is CrossFit’s approach to testing absolute strength, deeming these movements the “three most effective lifts in existence for developing and testing functional strength.” It was first posted in the CrossFit Journal on December 1, 2006. See more on CrossFit Total WOD page.
