“CrossFit Total” should feel heavy and slow. There should be several minutes of rest during the WOD. You should feel mentally exhausted at the end of “CrossFit Total” due to the number of times you have to come face to face with maximal loads.
The first attempt should be a weight you know you can lift for three repetitions. The second attempt should be a heavy single. The third attempt should be a heavier single, based on your performance from the previous two attempts.
If you’re brand new to the movements, increase the reps and decrease the load so you can practice the movements; but if you have some experience with these lifts, complete the WOD as prescribed and use it to measure your personal strength gains over time.
