Mobility: Shoulder Mobility.
Skill Practice Warm Up: None.
Strength Workout: 3 – 2 – 2 – 2 – 1 – 1 – 1 – 1 Jerk (“strong effort” – increasing load each round)
As the weight starts to get heavy drop the barbell to the ground and have someone help you get it back in the rack. When dropping the barbell think about letting it go and stepping backwards instead of pushing it forward to drop it, its better on your shoulders.
Super Set: Single Arm Ring Rows
8 x 3 (8 sets of 3 reps “across,” at the same angle for all sets)
Keep your shoulders square. If needed keep the non ring rowing hand out in front of you and even with the ring so you don’t slouch.
Metabolic Conditioning Workout: “Pran” (push press only Fran). For time.
21 – 15 – 9
Push press (A: 115lbs, I*: 73bs, N: 45lbs) – from the floor
Pull up (Health: band assisted)
Compare work/power outputs and times to: Fran and Stan.
Scaling Guide: 3 – 7 minutes.
*Women’s “As Prescribed” weights and reps (Rx)
Coaching Tips: Just like Fran be strategic with your sets. Unless you expect to do this under 4 minutes break up the set of 21 and 15. The weight is a little heavier than Fran but you don’t have to squat. Make sure to really drive with your legs and let that bar bounce off your shoulders. A push press is more about using your legs than arms, better technique will help you move faster.
