Training Intent

– Strength: Progressively build to a 1RM shoulder press. Make sure you have plan before starting so you do not fail too early. Your strict shoulder press will be 30% less than you push press. As such, taking small jumps in weight will ensure proper ramp-up and not failing too early.
– Metcon: Pacing is key today. KBS weight should be light. Try to go UB on sets and rest between transitions. You should start slow and look to keep you heart-rate consistent. This workout is very easy to redline early by going out too fast. You should start slower and augment you pace as the workout progresses/push you pace for the last 2 minutes.
