What 1RM to compete

What 1RMs are ideal to compete in the crossfit games next year I have been killing the wods but now thinking to get my strength numbers up to the perfect 1RM and then go back to wods.

1RM at the moment
Back Squat- 160kgs
Press- 80kgs
Deadlift- 200kgs
Benchpress- 135kgs
Snatch-80kgs (still learning form)
C&J-110kgs
Front squat- 120kgs

Thankyou

Re: What 1RM to compete

Strength of course isnt everything, especially strength in the 1 rep range, but from what youve given, the glaring issues are the olympic lifts. Most Games competitors are closer to 115/140.

Re: What 1RM to compete

The simple answer as far as what I have seen as far as strength is add 30kg to every lift to be in the game. You said you are killing the wods and if your time is competitive then adding 30kg should get you at least close. I know 30kg sounds high but that is my low ball estimate but I am still new to the sport also. Im on the opposite end from you, I have more than enough strength but its the conditioning so there is a lot to be good at for this sport.

Re: What 1RM to compete

Thanks guys, I'm going to start the catalyst athletics program along with my current program at my box. I know i need to get my snatch and clean and jerk up and i know i can do higher weights and its just my technique i need to work on. Going to start doing the http://competitorswod.blogspot.com.au after i hit good weights on my c&J and snatch so that im ready for the open when it comes next year.

Re: What 1RM to compete

How tall are you?

Definitely gotta push that FS up.

115/140 is on the low end. I took a look at the top 10 out of Australia. I don't know how many spots they get but I doubt they get more than a handful. 2 or 3. Most have a BS at least at 180 and some 200+ with DL in the mid 200's.

Your press looks off from your BP. So either you Bench way more or you have ****ty shoulder flexibility or just don't press much (TBH, I never did until CF though I did work BW upper body strength and Jerks [we never did OHP in HS]). You still want a good push press.

So a lot of this is going to depend on how tall you are.

Re: What 1RM to compete

I've got very similar numbers to yours, but I feel nowhere near competitive level. Your bench is much stronger (mine is only 100 kg), but my deadlift is stronger at 217.5 kg. The rest is about the same.

I'd put myself at intermediate at best, maybe even beginner. But I am a fairly big guy at 6'3" and 116 kg.

Re: What 1RM to compete

you've got a 300lbs bench but only 50lbs more on squat...

If you're benching 300, your squat should be 400+ and your DL is on the lowish side for how high your bench is.

Also i'll agree your OHP is low considering how high your bench is.
