Press – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Coach’s notes: This is an overhead press with barbell; no hips used, legs locked and full lockout overhead at finish. It is one of the big 3 CF (CrossFit) total movements, so it’s good practice for the total that may come soon – wink wink…
Add weight per set up to your 1 rep max, then try to repeat the same weights for the reverse from 2-5 reps on the other side of the max. If you can maintain same weights for the 2nd 2,3,4 and 5 reps as you did for first 5,4,3, and 2 reps, you have a fine tuned nervous system, well done!
Post weights used, BWT (body weight) and comments on your experiences with this pyramid.
