10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of the triplet:

Deadlift: 1 1/2 body weight

Bench press: body weight

Clean: 3/4 body weight

Set up three bars and storm through for time.

Warmup: Hand Walking

Skill: Bench Press.

The bench press is not commonly used in CrossFit.  It was originally an assistance exercise for the Jerk and Press (once, a part of OLY weightlifting before being banned in the 1960s.

Like the deadlift and back squat, the lift took on its own following, and the three together went from gym lifts to competitive weight triathlons: Powerlifting.

Now, in turn, Powerlifting is digressing into its component parts: assistance and partial lifts form the backbone of Strongman; Grip constests are becoming more popular; and 'shirted' bench press meets are resulting in bench presses in excess of 1000lbs.
