Push Press
AMRAP in 8 Minutes:
3 Push Press (use 75% from last set)
5 Ball Slams

Post Push Press Loads and Workout Time to Comments
For the strength segment, perform Push Presses (not Jerks — ie, no rebend of the knees) increasing the load each set up to the heaviest 1 rep you can get for the day.  Don’t forget to ring the cow bell with your PRs!

For the conditioning workout, use 75% of the heaviest weight you lifted on the Push Press from the strength segment.  This should be heavy.  You CAN take the bar from a rack today.  Use a heavy ball for slams.

Greg Everett demonstrates the Push Press – take note of how he lowers the bar and absorbs with his legs
