Yes, sometimes we do just have plain, old fashioned fun. Thanks to our buddy Wes for joining in and to Claire for filming/carrying our jackets down the mountain.

Crossfit Total – The Results

Filed under: pics, workouts — Tags: , , , , — Micah Vandegrift @ 3:20 pm

Earlier this week Abby suggested that we try Crossfit Total, a workout designed to get your one rep max for three major lifts. After completing the three lifts you add the weight total for all combined and based on a table of measurements, determine what level athlete you are.

Josh, Mara, Abby, Graham and Micah did the workout today (we miss you Andrew!) and here are the results — (others please add your ranking below)

– Based on the chart, I am a Novice weight lifter. But I say, “F the chart” cause I did my first muscleup today! Suck on that Crossfit Total! — MICAH

-My score was 390.  I guess it’s ok, I mean I’m in between Intermediate and Advanced, but I was pretty upset I couldn’t pull heavier weight.  It was a great exercise though because now I have an idea what I want some of my goals to be. ==Abby
