Warmup sets


Levels 2-4

20:00 – 35:00

Overhead Press
Spend 15 minutes working up to a heavy triple. This should take 4-5 sets.
Monitor your time–the class moves on regardless of how much time you waste being unprepared to train. 

35:00 – 40:00

Then, within five minutes, perform the following number of Strict Presses at 55% of bodyweight (or 80% of your heavy triple–go with whichever is the lower weight) in AS FEW SETS AS POSSIBLE.

L4 – 20 reps
L3 – 10 reps
L2 – 10 reps

If you hit your reps in one unbroken set last week, then you should go 5-10# heavier this week (try to increase your heavy triple set as well).

Obviously the goal is to complete the reps in one set. But you should NOT fail any reps. If you can’t get them all unbroken, just rack the bar and do another set after resting a minute, until you’ve hit your required number. Ask your training partners to check your overhead lockout position and keep you honest. If you can’t get the weight balanced over the middle of the foot at full extension, ask your coach how to address the issue: T-spine/shoulder mobility work, pressing technique practice, or just sucking it up. No participation trophies here, this is training for grownups: if you do the work, you get the credit; if you don’t, you know what you need to do.
