CrossFit WOD 040816
Press – 3 rep max
5 rounds, for time, of:
5 Deadlifts 275/185#
Today the 3rm on the press (also called strict press or shoulder press) The press is the meat and potatoes of the upper body lifts (though there’s some case to be made for the bench press here too!) Same as yesterday, and always when lifting heavy, make sure you’re using the valsalva maneuver on each rep. Also if you’re not currently using a belt, give it shot on this one today, your coach will run you through how to properly use it. Be on the lookout this week for a post about why/when/how to use a belt!
Ok, on to the conditioning. We’re living in sprint land again today! The deadlifts should be on the moderate to heavy side, but you should still be able to go at least 3-5 reps at a time with them. Go hard and try to keep this effort around that 5-7 minutes mark!
