The Sum Total of your Best attempt 1RM
45 min Cap
The CrossFit Total is a strength assessment that is the sum of the best of three attempts at the squat, shoulder press, and the deadlift, done in that order. All three exercises are done while standing on the ground, and require no additional equipment, such as a weight bench, which is needed for powerlifting. It first appeared on the CrossFit website on 3 December 2006, and was created by Mark Rippetoe.
