Another 1RM adventure on Wednesday – this time with the strict shoulder press.  It’s a struggle to stay tall the whole time and not get your Push Press on, but if you keep the technique sound you will develop great shoulder/arm strength with this movement.  It’s a good strength benchmark on its own, but also helps your handstands, overhead squats and snatches.  Get that weight up!
