Strength

Press

3×5 (build up to a weight that isn’t your max but you are able to hold onto for 3 sets of 5 reps. If it is a PB 5rm and you can hold it for 3 sets that’s great, but, we aren’t after our 5rm we are after 3 working sets of 5)

WOD

Death by push press 60/40kg (no racks)

You will do 1 push press the first minute, 2 the second minute, 3 the third minute, 4 the fourth minute, etc. You will have the full minute to complete all the reps that are asked and the faster you go the more rest you will get.

 

Post your loads for strength and minutes plus extra reps to comments

Please try this one at the box. I used a blue or purple band and looped it through a 20kg KB. Scale up or down depending on your pain threshold. This is really good for improving the OH position. Ideal for todays WOD… The better our shoulder range the less we are likely to over extend in our lumbar.
