The first day of Wendler 531 went off pretty smoothly with the back squats yesterday. It was very helpful that many of you came in already prepared with your numbers and or had already downloaded one of the 531 Apps to use for the calculations. If you have not already down so, please do it today. Also, if you do not know what your 1RM for the press is, see if you can find a 3RM or 5RM to calculate an estimated 1RM from. We did the CrossFit Total on September 1st. And please start using Beyond the whiteboard again if you have not been using it to track your numbers. I will be monitoring usage and removing people who are not active on it.
