Strict press, push press, push jerk

Hey Team,
Great progress on your overhead strength!
Much of this is due to our increased core strength - A person can't have "ripped abs" if they don't know how to properly "tighten" them - Bracing the mid-line (abs) during our functional exercise circuits helps...adding a moderately heavy load to the same movements helps dramatically.

We utilized the first 15-20 minutes of class to work:
Strict press x 3, push press x 3, push jerk x 3
The goal was to work up to a heavy load in the push press and then without putting the bar down hit some push presses followed by push jerks - This progression was a classic example of the hierarchy of power, skill, and functional movement.

We followed with a high repetition pullup circuit that had even our "running allergic" excited about the 800 meter run break...

Stacey and Danny finished this in sub 20 minutes...smoking!

So, whenever I see our names written up on the board like that, I can't help but wonder what our handwriting says about each of us. Anyone do any handwriting analysis???

As for the workout - Great work, guys!
