First Test
Hey all, been looking around the forum for a while now but haven't been posting.
I started Crossfit 2 months ago and I'm loving it, for the first time ever I'm looking forward to working out.

This week is my first time hitting 1RM's, we test every 8 weeks where I train, just thought I'd share my results, I know there not huge numbers but I'm pretty chuffed with them, I currently weigh 62kg.

Monday I tested,
Back Squat 90kg, surprised myself, most I done training was 60kg x 5.
Press 41kg, need to work on this.
Max Strict Chins x3 sets 8, 7, 6.

Deadlift 110kg, happy with this, not far off double bodyweight.
Push Press 50kg
Tabata Row 720m, gave it all I had, being short doesn't help.

Will be doing Front Squat, Max Ring Rows and Clean on Friday.

Re: First Test
Do you mind if I ask your stats? Height, age, etc would help give a clearer idea of where you're at. Congrats though.

Re: First Test
Hey Pearse, I'm 34, 5'6 and 62 kg, I used to run a couple times a week to keep fit but apart from the odd push up had no real strength training experience.

Re: First Test
Tested my 1RM's for a second time last week, in the past 2 months my body weight has gone from 62kg to 65kg,

Back squat 90kg to 95kg,
Deadlift 110kg to 125kg
Strict press 41kg to 45kg
Push press 50kg to 60kg
Front squat 65kg to 67.2kg, not great :-(
Clean 52.5kg to 60kg
Max strict chins x3, 8-7-6 to 9-8-7,

All going in the right direction, still a long way to go though.
