“No bees, no honey; no work, no money.” – German Proverb
Terri was back for a visit which included getting a paddling race in, doing CrossFit with us and turning a few of our members into pretzels.
Theory says that a lifter should be able to Push-Press about 30% more weight than they can Press. Today we put that theory to the test. So what do you think, is an increase of 30% accurate. Is the number to high or is it the skill that is not high enough???
Workout of the Day:
Non-Stop Burpees – 3 minute cap
Long story short: I agree with that 30% rule!
Some from the 9 o'clock class might vaguely recall the thunder of my dumped second attempt at the push press. I really made it a mental note to focus more on form and less on trying to muscle a big number overhead on my third and final attempt. This weight was the same as the second attempt (20% of my press weight) and I felt on the way up it was far less challenging than trying to muslce it because of such a violent hip explosion ( I think ) the weight just kind of "floated" up. Am I delirious for thinking so? Possibly, I am the only one on a strict paleno diet!
