Post Push Press Loads and Workout Time to Comments
Complete the Strength & Conditioning Warmup for 3 rounds BEFORE class begins. For the skill segment, we will work on reinforcing two positions related to the Handstand.  Scale each as necessary (see both videos below).

For the strength segment, follow the warmup progression and then complete 3 sets of 3 reps at 80% 1RM.  Rest 2-3 minutes between work sets.  You should not be working anywhere near failure here. Make sure you are not rebending your knees and making these into Jerks.  The entire strength segment shouldn’t take longer than 20 minutes.  Work quickly through the three warmup sets so you can maximize rest time during the 3 work sets.

For the conditioning workout, use the same set of KBs for both movements.  You are performing both movements with a KB in each hand.  For the step ups, hold them at your sides with arms extended.

MOBILITY WORKOUT tonight at 5:30pm!
