Press Doubles

Strength day - strict (shoulder) press.

Barbell warm-up:
8 x 45
8 x 55

WOD: 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2

Results: 85-85-85-85-85-85-85-85(x1)-80-80

I picked 85 to start, since my strict press 1RM has been oscillating between 90-95 for over a year now. But I think I shot too low -- coach said that a "true" 2RM would be do-able for about 4 sets. Next time we work press, I need to remember to use the small increment kilo plates we have. That will allow me to figure out a more exact measure of my max than 5 pound increments. Some 1lb plates would be nice too...


  1. We need some 1-lb weights too. We only have 2.5's so I have to do the 5# increments.

  2. Nevermind, I decided to not even respond and deleted my post. So now you probably have no idea what I'm talking about :)
