Wanted to find a good upper body strength component for today's workout at the gym on base, so I Googled "press push press jerk".
This lovely popped up, and 4 of us tried it out this morning. 8 thumbs up!
3 rounds of shoulder press – push press – push jerk
With a weight you can shoulder press for 6-8 reps and without racking or dropping the bar do shoulder presses until failure, then push presses to failure, and then push jerks to failure.
Rest 2-3 minutes between sets.
Used the 45# barbell.
Round 1: 14 - 12 - 3
Round 2: 7 - 10 - 4
Round 3: 9 - 7 - 6
Tried to push (power) jerk, but it just feels so awkward to me now. By round 3 I just did a regular (split) jerk, and felt a lot better.
To finish up, we did a quick untimed metcon.
We were all grunting on the lunges by the end, so I think it was good. :-D
