Post Press Loads and Workout Rounds to Comments

For the strength segment, for the Press follow the reps and % progression up to 3 sets of 2 reps at 85% 1RM.  You can work quickly through the warmups, but rest roughly 3-4 minutes between the 3 work sets.  These are going to be pretty heavy.

For the skill work, which follows the strength segment today, perform 5 sets of Ring Dips. Determine the number of reps for each round by taking 80% of your 1 set max.  Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.  Follow this progression scale if you don’t have Ring Dips:  Pushups, Ring Pushups, Bar Dips, Ring Dips.

For the conditioning workout, make sure you do Push Press, not Push Jerks…no rebend of the knees when you lockout overhead.
