Make sure you choose your weight wisely you only are allowed 3 attempts for each lift, athletes will not be allowed to reduce the weight after an attempt.
According to Coach Mark Rippetoe he suggests the following when performing a max test with 3 attempts. “The first attempt would be a weight you know you can do for a heavy set of three. The second attempt would be a weight you know without any doubt that you could do for a single, having just done the first attempt. And the third attempt is the weight you want to do, based on your performance on the previous two attempts.” Feel free to read Coach Rippetoe’s entire CrossFit Journal Article here.
