After a general warm up, you will have the remainder of the hour to find a 1RM in each of the following exercises:
-Your score will be the three maxes added together
- You must perform them in the above order
- After your warm up sets you will get official attempts at each lift
- You may not go back to an exercise after moving to the next
Here are some basic precautions that need to be followed for safety:
1) Don’t be stupid.
Don’t total if you’re injured to the extent that a total will aggravate the problem. This will cost you in at least training time, and possibly time off of work if you’re ultra-stupid.
2) Don’t be greedy.
Learn to recognize the difference between greed and ambition, and be merely ambitious.
3) Don’t be pig-headed.
If your first attempt tells you that you need to lower your second, do so, without a misplaced sense of diminished self-worth. It’s a test, and it’s designed to measure what’s there, not create something that’s not. That’s what training is for.
