Wednesday Workout: Shoulder to Overhead, Box Jump, and DU Intervals



Focus on technique and build to weight for shoulder to overhead (S2O) in the workout

Tip: Work on progressions from Shoulder Press –> Push Press –> Push Jerk –> Split Jerk


Level 1

In 3 Minutes Complete the Following for 5 Total Sets:

  • Dumbbell Push Press (35/20) x 5
  • Box Jump Step Down (18/12) x 10
  • Jump Rope Single x 50
  • Rest for remainder of the set

Level 2

In 3 Minutes Complete the Following for 5 Total Sets:

  • Shoulder to Overhead Heavy* x 5
  • Box Jump Step Down (24/20) x 15
  • Double Under x 50
  • Rest for remainder of the set

Notes: Record S2O weight and time per set – can be push press, push jerk, etc, just get the barbell from shoulders to locked out position overhead.  Step down on box jumps and focus on being explosive on the way up (use a 12″ box or plates to make cycling through step down easier if necessary).  Take barbell from the floor!

  2. 6:54 @ 175#

  3. 6:33 @ 165×3, 175×2

  4. Push jerk: 135#
    WOD Interval times: 1:48, 1:38, 1:50, 1:53, 1:59
    Scaled the double-unders to 25. Most of the variance in interval times was because of tripping up DUs.

  5. 6:53 @ 175

  6. 1:11, 1:25, 1:37, 1:52
    scaled to 4 rounds @95#
    24″ box but scaled to 10 reps
    50 DUs

  7. 1:14, 1:13, 1:14, 1:13, 1:13 @ 105#

  8. 2:11 * 4; 1:58.

  9. 1:19, 1:20, 1:18, 1:14, 1:10 @ 75#

    Went light-ish on the S2O due to flu shot arm soreness. Had a good DU day. All 5 sets unbroken.

  10. 1:41-1:43 for the first 4 rounds, 1:59 for the last one because I failed on my first S2O and had to clean it again.


  11. 2:15, 2:24, 1:50, 2:10, 2:09: 10:48 total (75#, only did 40 DUs)
