CF total =

1RM back squat
+
1RM strict overhead press
+
1RM deadlift

A good score is relative to your bodyweight/size.

Re: New...whats CF total

If the combined total of all the lifts posted above equals 1,000 lbs or more, you're pretty legit. But like David said, it's all relative to your size and strength.
