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!

Strength:  15 mins to find 1RM Press (suggested rep scheme: 10-5-3-3-1-1-1)
For time:

– 50 Box Jumps, 24/20 in.
– 800M Run with 20/10 lb med ball

  1. I never get tired of posting a huge list of PRs when we work for a 1-rep max! Here’s the list of new PRs from today’s Press workout:
    – Craig E 150 lbs
    – Claire 75 lbs
    – Heather 60 lbs
    – Athena 65 lbs
    – Byron 105 lbs
    – Tracy 50 lbs
    – Craig M 110 lbs
    – Jimmy 135 lbs
    Congrats, everyone! That’s some big weight!
    Also, I was really looking forward to posting that I got the best time in today’s Press/Box Jump/Run WOD, but then Julia swooped in at the last minute and threw a 13:35 on the board. Not cool!! Just kidding, awesome work, Julia – you’re getting pretty fast on the box!
