  1. Just an added note: it might not be apparent in the video above, but we want to start the Push Press from the Front Rack position. If you know that you have difficulty achieving the front rack (i.e. position at the top of a Clean/Front Squat), do some stretching beforehand to open up your triceps and lat. dorsi. If you need help ask one of the trainers or take a peak at the Mobility WOD Posters.
