Push Press

We are on the 2nd week of the Wendler cycle for Push Press. All percentages for this cycle are based on a “WORKING MAX” that is calculated by taking 90% of your actual or best estimated 1RM. If you do not have any numbers for push press, you may be able to approximate it based on your max strict press or push jerk. Ask a coach if you have any questions about how to calculate your working max, since you will be using this number for the next 4 weeks.

**ALL PERCENTAGES BASED ON WORKING MAX (90% OF 1RM) — record working max to comments so you remember for next time**

Warm-up: 5-5-3
5 reps @ 40% of working max
5 reps @ 50%
3 reps @ 60%

Working sets: 3-3-3+
3 reps @ 70%
3 reps @ 80%
3+ (at least 5 but as many as possible with good form) @ 90%


With a running clock, on the 0:00, 6:00, and 12:00:

Run 400m for Time (all runs start & end at bay door)

If unable to run, sub for 500m Row
