The last couple of weeks have been a gauntlet of max efforts.  We have clean and jerked, snatched from various positions, performed the Crossfit Total and endured yesterday’s “testing day”.  In other words, you have a lot of data about your current abilities and it will be used in the weeks to come.

  You’ll never know how far you’ve come, whether it be in pounds, seconds, or inches, if you don’t know where you are.

  Enjoy today’s classic benchmark workout, if you’ve done it recently, do it again and go for a PR.
