WOD - Thursday 2021-02-04

OVERVIEW

Today’s WOD is an upper body strength test. The Strict Press is a great way to measure and build upper body vertical pushing strength. There is no help from the legs or hips and the focus is keeping a braced core throughout the movement. We are going to build too heavy sets of 5 reps. Remember NO DIP and small increases in weight jumps.
