Strict Press – 5×10
Teams of 2
Switch every 200m
Today we have five sets of 10 in the strict press. One interesting aspect of doing high rep strict presses is that the top of the movement is actually the easiest point to rest. We most often fail strict presses in the middle of the movement, in front of our face. One way to make this area of the movement easier is to rebound the weight off of our shoulders, rather than pausing in front rack. The top of the movement is also a great place to breathe, because we don’t have the barbell resting across our shoulders, hindering the rise and fall of our chest. Our cash-out today is a challenging partner piece that has us rowing 2000m as fast as possible. One of the keys to doing a partner workout on the rower is speedy transitions. Two things you can do to speed up your transitions: 1) Have the partner on the dismount hold the seat for the partner who’s hopping on and 2) Place the handle back in the cradle between changes rather than handing it off, so that buddy 2 gets a full pull.
