This is apparently a 'new' version of the Crossfit Total. I jacked a thread from the Mainsite comments in case anybody needs it:

"This is an alternate CrossFit Total. Like in weightlifting competitions, 3 attempts at each lift. Your first lift should be your 3RM. Then do as much as you think you can do after that. The final lift is the weight you want to do. Rest at least 3 minutes between but not more than 10 minutes. Don't do anything else between attempts."- Comment #22 - Posted by: Matthew 23/6'2.5"/213 at January 25, 2010 6:00 PM

Little Run at lunch (just over 3 miles. 21:05 or something).

Went to VA to buy me some Vibram Five Fingers. Got the at GSS Gear. Sweet place, check it out. Also checked out CrossFit Obsession while I was there, since I had a few hours to kill. Another nice place.

Did this WOD Wednesday:

Clean: Power Clean from the Floor.
Started with 135 for a warm up. Then 185 which came up fairly easy. Tried 205 and just could not get it....Tried SEVERAL times. Was just not getting the movement right!

Bench Press: Warmed up with a SET of 135. Then jumped straight to 195 (BW=191). Put the cookies on for 200 and failed. Maybe next time.

Over Head Squat: I knew this was going to suck. LOL. Could not even get 95! Tried MANY times. Form went to hell every time I started dropping....Elbows bending, knees coming in, Core stabilization failing, leanign forward, you name it! Sucked. Did 75 and struggled keeping the Posture even with it. Not sure where my malfunction is. Need some people to watch me some more and get some Video for me so I can see what the heck I am doing!

Anyway, with those Numbers (185-195-75) My total was only 455.

I guess today was a reminder that I have a lot of work to do to better myself.
