Score = Sum of the Best of Each Lift
Athlete gets 3 attempts at each lift. Weight must increase after each successful attempt at each movement. Weight may not be decreased after first attempt. A failed rep counts as an attempt. Take back squat and shoulder press (aka: strict press) from the weight rack.
There is no time limit for each lift or for the length of the session in which they are all performed, but they must all be performed during one session (i.e., athlete cannot leave the area to rest or perform other activities between the three lifts).
Beginning athletes should treat today as an opportunity to practice and get comfortable with heavy lifts. This should not be a super big grind. The objective for all lifts is to get 3 reps with optimal mechanics at a very heavy load, not the heaviest load. The number of reps allows the coach to catch any big deviation in mechanics at a submaximal weight.
