Tuesday Workout: Shoulder Press & Gymnastic Drills

Strength

Shoulder Press 3-3-3-3-3 (80 to 90%, compare to 11/2 or 10/26)

Kipping drills

50 arch-hollow snaps (from push-up position, feet coming off the floor when you snap) and 30 mini-tap swings, focus of today is on technique so can break up the numbers as necessary and time is not a factor

We need to finish everything up by 6:45 for our rowing seminar.

  1. shoulder press: 45#, 45#, 67#, 89#, 89# – still working on proper form

    50 arch-hollow snaps
    30 mini-tap swings

    Really liked focusing on form and not worrying about the clock.

    1. Hey G,
      How is that left shoulder feeling? Are the stretches I showed you helping at all? I’ll be around in the AM later this week and I’m sure we’ll talk about it more, but an 89# press x3 is solid work. Great job.

      1. Thanks man. Yeah, I’m working on those stretches (and a few others) and I think it is helping. The shoulder gets better every week, but every once in awhile it reminds me that it’s not 100% quite yet.

        The 89# felt really good. Really wanted to try for heavier, but am focusing on getting the form right and the shoulder healed before I go for anything too heavy.
