Notes from CF mainsite:
This benchmark workout is meant to be a test of strength. Beginning athletes should worry less about the rules of the Total, and treat today as an opportunity to practice and get comfortable with heavy lifts. Be aware of your mechanics and stop adding weight if your technique becomes unsafe.
Intermediate athletes do not need to scale this WOD.
Back squat 3-3-1-1 reps
Shoulder press 3-3-1-1 reps
Deadlift 3-3-1-1 reps
