Strength Day and Relay Races!
(7 sets of descending reps of shoulder press; goal is to add weight each round to find 1 rep max (1RM); rest as needed)
8 Rounds of 50m sprints for time
Great effort incorporating a strength day into the week. Everyone found their one rep max of strict shoulder press today. Remember that number and use it to help determine your other max pressing movements. We will revisit strength training with the other barbell lifts in the future. Building strength will allow for greater work capacity which leads to faster WOD times and recovery, as well as better technique and control.
Dan’s very impressive 195# and Lorri and Lyndi both hitting 80# on their 1RM shoulder press were just some of the highlights today. The other highlights being how everyone cheered each other on, spotted and just kept it flowing lift after lift. Finishing with sprints was a fun way to get some conditioning in.
Oh and Happy Birthday Jim! Don’t think we won’t get your birthday WOD in.
