Lifting Ourselves and One Another

For loads;

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.

Comments: 2

As rx’d – 45,50,55,55,60 then the reverse…BWT – 175.

If I did it correctly, I had no problem with it. Shoulder work isn’t my forte, anyway.

Did this press WOD after run/row.
115,125,135,145,160, then reverse. BWT 235. No issues with pyramid.
