The CrossFit Total-The Importance of Measuring Strength

DSCF0155

This Saturday (the 24th @ 10:30) will be the first time we test the CrossFit Total. On the September 3 blog last month, we discussed what the Total is: a test of the three lifts that best showcase your functional strength: Shoulder Press, Deadlift, and Squat. Why is this important?
Many affiliates everywhere are beginning to understand the importance of increasing strength to increase fitness. We don’t just want to do this solely for the sake of getting stronger; increasing strength allows you to have more work capacity and unlocks the ability to increase speed, endurance, and so-on.
Simply put, the stronger you are, the easier WOD’s will be and the better you will become. No other aspect of CF can improve the rest like strength can. Testing the Total will give you an idea of how strong you are, with that RESULTS just happen!
