Olympic Total:

* 1 rep max snatch
* 1 rep max clean and jerk

The order for performing the lifts will be snatch then clean & jerk. The best single attempt for each of the lifts are added together for the Total. There is no time limit for each lift or for the length of the session in which they are all performed, but they must be performed during one session—i.e., you cannot leave the area to rest or perform other activities between the lifts. 

In the words of Rip...
Here are some basic precautions that need to be followed for safety:
  1. Don’t be stupid. Don’t total if you’re injured to the extent that a total will aggravate the problem. This will cost you in at least training time, and possibly time off of work if you’re ultra-stupid.
  2. Don’t be greedy. Learn to recognize the difference between greed and ambition, and be merely ambitious.
  3. Don’t be pig-headed. If your first attempt tells you that you need to lower your second, do so, without a misplaced sense of diminished self-worth. It’s a test, and it’s designed to measure what’s there, not create something that’s not. That’s what training is for.
