Ready for a hefty helping of pressing!? Use today to dial in the bar path for all 3 lifts. Chin back as the bar drives straight up off the front rack, lock it out overhead, active shoulders with the bar directly over the heel, and head back through. This order of events doesn’t change across all three of the overhead presses today. What does change is what happens BEFORE all that pressing. On the push press you add a “dip and drive” to the above sequence and on the push jerk you add a “dip, drive, press and drop” to the above sequence. Focus in on 2 things today. The bar path and the timing of the “drive then press” (on the push press and push jerk). Then, after all 3 lifts are warmed up and the movement patterns are primed, build in load on the shoulder press across 4 sets of 1 rep. Try to end with a new 1RM! After 4 sets, transition to 4 sets of 3 reps building in load on the push press. Then, do the same on the push jerk, except do sets of 5! Rest at least 2 full minutes between sets and post any PRs to the PR board.
