Let's take a trip down memory lane and reflect on a goal I had set for myself. The last time I did CFT, I scored 605. After that, I mentioned that I knew I could improve over the next few months, so I figured I could improve 45 points over the next 6 months if I stuck to CF training and took care of myself. Well, I haven't necessarily been taking the best care of myself when I think about my diet, but I have been fairly consistent with training. So CFT came up again, and I set some goal weights in order to reach 650. Did I make it? You be the judge of that...
Workout: CrossFit Total (Three attempts at achieving your maximum weight on an exercise) Please realize that there is a ramp-up warm-up that goes along with this, so I am not lifting these on cold muscles.
Back Squat: (Goal 230#)...205#, 225#, 235#
Shoulder Press: (Goal 125#)...115#, 115#, 120#
Deadlift: (Goal 285#)...255#, 275#, 295#
CTF SCORE: 650
*I did it! Even with two days to spare. That score was my goal for June, and I hit it in May. My next goal is to hit 700 by December. I need to catch up to my friend Scott who just scored a cool 725! Way to go Scott!
