Coaching Tips: Try and clean the sandbag right up to your shoulder and then get it on your back quickly to get your 100m sandbag buy out of the way. For the push presses, make sure you finish with the dumbbells over your shoulders (versus out in front). Be careful about letting your knees slide forward on the dip drive of the push press (it isn’t good for them)! Remember to do jump up – step downs on the box jumps.
