Slideshow for "push press" and "push jerk" won't load for me. Any other links or descriptions handy?
What is the downside of using a Smith machine for these exercises and those we did today? To my mind it allows me to lift a higher weight with a reduced risk of injury, which has to be good.
I'm sure there's a strong counter-argument, does anyone know what it is?
what are the specifics of the shoulder press?
so what's the difference between a push press and a shoulder press?
Don't use a Smith machine--the value in these exercises is largely in their athletic nature. Using a Smith machine locks you into a plane of motion that is unnatural for the movements.
In short, you are losing benefits AND you will probably eventually develop knee, hip, back or shoulder problems from the Smith's forced up-and-down motion. A good rule of thumb is to always use barbells, dumbells, or kettlebells for all of your weight work.
"What is the downside of using a Smith machine for these exercises and those we did today? To my mind it allows me to lift a higher weight with a reduced risk of injury, which has to be good."
You will not be stabilizing the weight yourself, which is a main part of the benefit. It would be better to use a lighter weight that you can perform the exercise with great form, and still get the benefit of core stabilization, than to use the Smith machine. Another downside of the smith machine is that it locks the path of the barbell into a straight course, whereas your body's natural motion isn't exactly a straight line. This has been shown to cause injuries in the shoulder girdle.
So, just drop the weight a bit, and get the full benefit!
sorry, I must have been typing at the same time!
Matthew, I think that the argument against using a Smith machine is that your muscles are missing out on the stabilizing and balance work that they otherwise would get with the traditional barbell versions of yesterday and todays WOD.
The traditional barbell lifts are more functional and realistic movements IMO, for example the back squat is analagous to the fireman's carry. On the Smith machine the range of motion is limited since you don't have to worry about the weight moving forwards or backwards (only up & down). Whereas if you are fireman's carry a person you really need to balance that body weight else you could do a faceplant with all that body coming down on you.
It's been argued that kettlebells or other odd type objects (Strongman) are beneficial in developing those stabilizing muscles too.
I think that weightlifting gurus (which I am not) would probably argue that doing more weight on a Smith machine is not safer and may even be promoting bad form and technique.
Try clicking on "Presses" video. It shows all three.
Looking fwd to building more core strength.
Thanks everyone. Points taken.
Ooh la la, I'm getting that warm, fuzzy feeling...love doing the presses!
shoulders in ears, people!
Coach's words: "'How', you might ask, 'would someone injure themselves lifting overhead?' By lifting overhead with an inactive shoulder is one obvious answer. When lifting overhead, working to put the shoulder in your ear protects the shoulder. I first learned this as a young gymnast."
Do it(head nod)...do it.
Shoulder Press: 95,115,125,135,145lbs.
Push Press: 135,155,165,175,185lbs.
Push Jerk: 135,175,185,195,205lbs.
Kevinhodges I had the same problem till I downloaded a java program and it fixed it
Jess Woody I have a Free Spotter that the bar hangs on ropes. when you take up the weight it works in all directions for all the benifits. If you fail in a lift you just let go and it hangs in the air where you left it.
Great website Valley CrossFit, looks you have some fun toys to play with up there also.
Thanks CJ for the tip on looking at the presses video.
weight in kilo's
pretty poor effort today, just felt ordinary
finished with some hollow rocks
weights in kilos, I did split jerks cause i'm practicing for the oly lifting course
MP - 40, 45, 47.5, 50, 52.5
PP - 55, 57.5, 60, 62.5, 65
Jerks - 67.5, 70, 72.5, 77.5 miss, 77.5 miss
Bench press 70x3x3
DL - 110x5x5
Looks like a fun day I look forward to it.
Question is everyone using the same hand spacing for all lifts? I was planning on using the grip I do cleans with. Thanks.
I am a few days behind - will catch this WOD on Thurs
Too distracted and tired to safely put up more weight.
I have done seated military presses for years with no resulting shoulder problems, and it is a rom that I find easy and comfortable to complete. People have always tried to get me to do them from the front saying they are safer.
What is the feeling from crossfit? Today's WOD doesn't specify...behind or in front of the neck? Standing or sitting?
40 x 5
42.5, 45, 47.5, 47.5, 50
Worked my way up to 160 lbs. max. Failed at 165. Every movement from the floor.
PHILLY was an awesome time (still hurtin)
I'm going to go for this one w/o the smith machine. Should be a fun one.
Pwoodruff, you aren't always going to have a bench around to sit on and support your back so from a functional perspective, you will want to go with standing presses. Not to mention you can't do push press and push jerk while seated.
As far as behind the neck or in front, I always found BTN uncomfortable on my shoulders and have also been advised that it is less safe than in front (don't have references to hand but will try to find them if you want).
For technique cues have a look at the vid below (was linked above earlier but deleted in a clean up I guess):
all weight in lbs.
SP: 50, 60, 70, 85, 95
PP: 105, 115, 125, 135F x 2, 130
JP: 135, 135, 140, 145F + 145 success, 145F + 145 success
Lost my nerve on a couple of the lifts. No safe way / place to bail. Also need to work on JP form; don't think i was getting low enough because i my arms weren't quite locked once i hit the ground.
SP: 95, 105, 115, 120, 125(fail)
PP: 125, 135, 145, 145, 135
PJ: Uncomfortable with the body movement so I performed with the 45lb bar.
-Finished with some pull-ups & push-ups.
PJ: 135/135/135/155 Fail/135/135
Should've rested more between sets. Need work on Push Jerk.
Everything went pretty smoothly, I probably could have used 10lbs more on each set. But I had nothing to go off of... Never done this workout before.
What does it mean to do 1-1-1-1-1
For example SP 1-1-1-1-1, does that mean that I only lift the bar once, than add more weight, go back into position and lift the bar only once, etc..? Or does "1" imply doint several lifts with the same weight from the same starting position?
You got it the first time . . . one rep, add more weight, one rep, add more weight.
This pattern doesn't show up in the WOD very often (so no need to worry about the lack of "cardio"); it's a "max effort" kind of day . . . trying to build up to a true all-out 1-rep-max as the last lift in each of 5 efforts per movement.
worked up to 220, i think i could have done more, im not sure if my technique on the push jerk was as good as it could have been. it felt like i was using my shoulders to push more than getting under the bar and pushing it up with my legs. is that right?
2nd day of a technical WOD.
Whats up tomorrow, FGB??
PRESS 135 140 145 (FAIL), 135, 135
PUSH 135, 140, 145, 150, 155
Jerk 135, 145, 155, 160, 165 form needs work first time
push press 155
push jerk 135
All weights cleaned from deck. Cleaned 245 easily, but lacked the proper speed and power to lock it out today.
Realized today my PJ's need lots of work, as I cant PJ what I can PP. Not sure why. I think its the speed that I am lacking, to get under the bar for the second dip and drive.
Will be away for a couple days as I have a comp this coming saturday.
Body weight 84kg
All loads in kg and all weights cleaned from floor
SP: 45 - 55 - 65 - 70 - 75(fail)
PP: 75 - 80(failed clean*2) - 70*2 - 75(chinned myself on 2nd rep!) - 75
PJ: 55*2 - 60 - 65(PP then PJ) - 70(PP then PJ)
Good day out. Haven't shoulder pressed in years so happy with 70kg. Should have looked at the PP Max Effort day so I could have at least matched PR(77.5)but will get it next time.
Have not done PJ before and it is a lot subtler than expected. My body really wanted to PP but I made sure to reinforce with a PJ before dropping the weight. Can't believe that I am push-pressing same load as I am front squatting (both held back at the moment by my ability to clean the bar).
There has to be bonus points for those of us who not only lift the weight from the deck, but also have to lower it from above our heads, in a controlled manner.
This is really beginning to be a pain in the ass. Think its time to invest in some bumpers.
Good luck with your comp Steveo! Are you up for another strongman event??
Knock 'em flat, Steveo!
Nice work Valley CF! Way to spread the love in SoCal.
Today will be better than yesterday. My upper lifts are way better than the squats, and I know that's not right.
Shoulder Press: 95lbs, 115lbs, 125lbs, 135lbs (fail), 125lbs
Push Press: 135lbs, 145lbs, 155lbs, 145lbs
Push Jerk: 135lbs, 145lbs, 155lbs, 165lbs (fail), 155 lbs
Shoulder Press: 40#, 40#, 40#, 40#, 40#
I tried 45# and failed.
Push Press: 45#, 45#, 45#, 45#, 45#
This is a PR. The last time we did these I was working with 30#.
Push Jerk: 30#, 30#, 30#, 30#, 30#
I tried 40# and failed.
I finished up with some assisted pull-ups, jump rope practice, & stretching.
Thanks for the response Kempie. Your points make sense. Reading that, seeing the video then re reading coachs instructions again, it all became clear. Duh! The basic press is the same all the way through, but the second and third movements are slightly different allowing more weight to be used, hence coach's request to increase the load on each of the 15 sets, not just within the individual exercise; your end #age of the sh press is at least the starting #age of the push press; then your end weight of the push press is at least the starting #age of the push jerk! Anyways...
sh press; 125, 135, 140(f), 135, 135
push press; 145, 155, 170, 190(f), 185
push jerk,lowered my starting weight as this movement is new to me; 170, 175(f), 160, 170, 180(f)
All weights taken from the floor. Tried to go up by 20 lbs each lift. Felt a little tired so was unable to get a PR. 3rd WO today.
SP: 135, 155, 175, 185, 205 (used for warm-ups)
PP: 225, 245, 265, 285, 300
PJ: 315, 335, 355, 375, 400
This workout was too easy. When you are a physical specimen like big darryl is you really need to do allot more. I did this WOD as Rxd three times in a row. Here is my load.
SP 185, 205, 225, 275, 315
PP 215, 225, 275, 295, 315
PJ 305, 335, 374, 405, 425
BW 180 of twisted steal and sex appeal
"Big Darryl" needs to learn how to spell "CrossFit" and "a lot" while following the instrx for the WOD.
huh, i didnt know the tough guy convention was coming to town.
tried split jerks on the first two jerks, but i didnt feel comfortable w/ them...probably because i never do them. anyway, switched to regular push jerk and felt better. need to work on those splits.
swim WOD later (B4 if the pool has a brick, otherwise, D1) as well as bar muscleup work tonight.
165/170/175/180/185 (fail on the last rep)
I rode 20k home from work (cycling) and the did the WOD
worked my way up to 135# in the push jerk and started failing at 140# in split jerk
Technique was the problem no doubt as I have never really done them before
where is Sue A.
Performed 3 sets of 5 reps of 1.5pood KB bent presses each arm. Tehn 3 sets of 5 reps of 2KB military press, push press, then push jerk. Cant wait to get a 2pood KB. Warmed up with 2 hours of BJJ at the academy.
Shoulder press - 95, 105, 115, 125, 130
Push press - 135, 140(f), 140(f), 140(f), 95
Push jerk - 95, 105, 115, 135(f), 135
140 is my PR for push press from the previous push press 1RM day. Couldn't match it today.
New to the push jerk movement so did a bit of practice with a pipe and empty OL bar and went light.
SP - 135,145,165,175,185
PP - 185,195,205,225,235
PJ - 185,205,225,235,245
I really don't have much confidence in my PJ yet. Especially with no bumpers. I feel like I could do more, but don't want to get kicked out of the gym if I drop the weight from up high.
A day behind. Did the O'course in 10:34, a little slow because it was damp and slick, then some breakfalls. Then did OHS 65-85-95-115-125
BS 205-225-245-265-275 fail-270 fail.
I had vowed to take a week of rest...then you start dropping the max-effort days (which I love). Skipped yesterday because of a busted-up knee. Thought I'd give today a go...
Shoulder Press: 85#, 95#, 105#, 110#, 115# (at this point, my wrist was hurting a bit, but I said, eh, what the hell...)
Push Press: 125# at that point, I had to quit, it's already been a month since I sprained my wrist, and I tweaked it pretty good...ugh. Otherwise, fun times :D
Shoulder Press: 95#/105#/115#/135#/145#FAIL
Push Press: 145#/155#/165#/170#FAIL/165#
Split Jerk: 135#/145#/150#/155#/160#
Had no shoulder press 1RM on record
push press 1RM is 170# on 1/14/05, missed by 5# today
split jerk 1RM was 155# on 5/11/05, beat it by 5# today
SP -95 -95 -105 -100 -100
PP -100 -115 -125 -130 -130
PJ -115 -125 -135 -145 -140
shoulder press - 95-105-115-125-135
push press - 135-145-155-165-175
push jerk - 175(poor form)-155-155-165-165
I really need to work on my form with the olympic lifts. I just am not dropping underneath well enough.
Max only and all from floor. I will go higher when I can clean more weight
Question, should I lower the weight slowly after each rep or is it the movement designed to drop the weight from the top?
hey mike C., for all you retards you do spell allot like this. Need a dicitonary and english lessons??
SP - 65, 65, 95, 105, 115
PP - 115, 125 135, 145, 150 (barely)
PF - 95 (fail), 65, 65, 65, 85, 95 + 105 (weak but I had to try)
The PJ was the hardest. Balance and form began to really suffer on PJ and towards the end of PP.
sorry, typo. PF=PJ in that earlier post.
Cisco CrossFit team (Bricker and Brand for today) executed WoD as follows: (in lbs)
- SP @ 95, 105, 115, 115, 115, 115.
- PP @ 115, 135, 135, 140, 145.
- PJ @ 95, 95, 95, 115, 115.
- SP @ 65, 85, 95, 115, 105, 95.
- PP @ 115, 135, 135, 140, 145.
- PJ @ 95, 95, 95, 115, 135.
Hope you guys don't mind....just wanted to say I got my first muscle ups today. Did yesterday's WOD since I'm a day behind, then worked on MU form until I did one. Then just so I knew it wasn't a fluke, did two consecutive MU's.
Had to tell somebody since nobody I know can appreciate it.
BTW, I'm 39 years old and consider myself to be in excellent shape. But compared to the people who post here, I've got a long way to go.
Thanks for the inspiration my fellow Crossfit kool-aid drinkers!!

Still can't get bodyweight overhead. I feel like I've stalled out on the overhead lifts. Hopefully I can break through this, because its really starting to annoy the hell out of me.

I never did push-jerks before, so I did a few with an empty bar, but still didn't feel comfortable enough to attempt a 1RM. Did 2x5 with 135#'s instead.
Body weight 79.1kg, body fat 13.0%

PJ: 65 (fail), 62.5 (fail), 40 practice.
Still having problems with push jerk technique.
PJ 135 kept it light, new movement
I'm in the military, and I was wondering what some of you guys do for workouts when you are on det.
Henry Rollins said to find out what lesson the iron has for you each day. Today's lesson, talk with the iron more often. Get stronger. Post bigger numbers slowly, not too fast.
All numbers are maxes. BW 215 (yahoo! was 223 and climbing)
SP: 95 (PR for me, I always used the hips ala push press)
PP: 135 (more may have been possible)
PJ: 145 (I know 160 is my max, but form went to hell and 135 became a chore)
Steveo, I hear you about lowering the weight, but that's the price I pay for having no room for a home gym and the wife will not park her princess mobile outdoors.
As for the "allot" comments: As it was used in the post above, "allot" was incorrect. As in "I can do allot more." Should have been a lot. Two words. Always has been; always will be.
"Allot" means to dole out or portion. But then, those posts above may not be there come tomorrow, so Brian, don't delete this one because I need the records of my lifts (even if they are puny).
Finally found Red Tail Ale. It should find my stomach in about 3 hours.
Shoulders were to ears at all times.

Push Jerk 155, 175, 185, 195, 195 (felt very awkward, needs practice)
squat clean and push jerk practice with a bar. Need work on the grip transition.
Again, a little bit disappointed with today's progress.

Finished with some more frustrating bar muscle-up practice. I think I am getting closer. Towel over the hand-ripping bar at my gym helps a lot.
I heard CF Philly was a tough one! can't wait to make it out there soon!

I'm new to this lift so I took it easy on the weight just to get used to the movement. It still feels wonky.
Still had a good deal of energy and angst to work out so I followed up with:
135lb bench press x10
4 sets of 2 dead hang pull ups switching grip p/set
curls (just for fun) from 45 - 85lbs
10 bar dips
10 crunch and hold sit ups
Right shoulder was feeling twangs throughout. I decided to favor the left side of the "discretion > valor" equation, and hold off on the PJs.
PP 165,175,185,190 Failed twice for new PR
Dropped since this was my 1st PJ. 1st and last lifts weren't pretty, the middle were passable

Droped down in weight due to shoulder pain. I did what perceived to be putting my shoulders in my ears during the lift, But history of bad shoulders got to me. I know I could get more, but not much. Must work on form! It's motivating to see some of the weight being lifted here. Can't weight for those to be my posts.
Press Jerk form just, well, wasn't feelin' right.
All presses at 30#'s. Increase next time.
warmup: bench press 130x5; kipping pullups 3x10
Jerk form needs work; it's hell on the back.

I just looked at the push jerk slideshow on the exercise page and realized I was doing it wrong. I was doing split jerks not push jerks.
Jerk 95/115/125/135/140 Did just regular jerks as I still can't figure the push-jerk out.
An overall crappy effort, I had a tough time getting into this one due to my wonky shoulder.
p/jerl 95/115/115/115/115/115/ need to work on form.

mostly just a warm up so as not to get too sore after a layoff. felt good and i should not be very sore. will jump into it a little harder tomorrow
I forgot I also hit the thai pads for three rds of 2 minutes 100% intensity, skipped rope for 3 rnds of three minutes and subsequently ran a 7m flat mile on the treadmill
Hihaaaaaaaaaa !!! was a good day
Could not get to gym today so did HSPU's came down by 1 each round from 13. BWT-185
I never did Push jerks before, so I kept he weight somewhat light.
SP: 115, 135, 115, 115, 115
PP: 135, 155, 165, 165, 165
PJ: 95, 115, 115, 115, 115
CF warm up
PP-never performed before- lowered weight to work on form-95,,105,120,135
JP-never performed before- technique was terrible-again lowered weight to practice form-45,65,70,80,90.
Taught 60 minute ab class- 1400+ variations of crunches.
95, 115 for all other reps
no rack, had to clean all from floor
squat cleaned from floor every rep, BW 185
115(x3 too easy), 125, 125, 135, 145 fail
145, 155, 155, 165, 165
165, 175 fail, 175 fail, 135 (x2), 135 (x2) for form
At least I was able to squat clean 175. I power cleaned it last time.
practiced a headstand to work my neck muscles. Stayed up 5:30 using finger tips for balance and my foot on a wall periodically. This seems easier the more you try and not use the wall.
Just got rolling with CrossFit last week; anybody else in the SF East Bay? I'm in Walnut Creek...
Form started to go towards the end; too early on my return to this kind of lifting to over extend myself.
BW: 151 (eeeeyowch!- that NYC starving-actor diet never fails!)
SP: 65, 85, 90, 95, 100
PP: 105, 110, 115, 120, 125

Did this at the end of my shift as a newbie PT "towel shark" at a ritzy UES health club.
Pre-PFT scaled-down WOD
2x5 95# Press (behind the neck)
2x5 135# Push-press (1 behind, one in front)
5 165# Push-jerk (felt very unnatural)
SP - 45, 55, 65, 70 (PR), 70
PP - 75, 85, 95, 105 (PR), 105-Fail
SJ - 105, 110, 5x45 - too tired & distracted to finish
After failing at 155, went lighter to work form.
I don't believe I've ever worked Push jerks before.
All reps Power cleaned from the floor.
my computer was down so i made up this wod which coincides quite nicely!
max out c&j
got new pb!! 90 kgs x 1 x 1 after a few warm-ups.
been stuck on 85 for ages...very happy

Worked skin the cats and front/back levers on rings.
Shoulders killing me :-D.
Jerk-175,180,185(PR,tweaked the neck),180,175
I just could not get my body to invoke the push jerk at heavier loads. I just failed! I guess that is something to work on. Anyway:
PJ: 85 (fail) 85 (fail) 85 (fail) I figured I was not going to get the jerk and called it a day. I did some work on the move with a 9# body bar afterwards.
We at the Pathfinder Company truly enjoy CrossFit! Here recently the comments have become unbelieveable. I know that 98% of the post are valid but the other 2% are BS!!! For some, this has turned into a fictional chat room...grow up!!!
W/U 25 minutes road bike in the trainer then three rounds 15 bwsquats, 15 situps, 5 chin-ups.
P-65, 85, 95, 105, 115
PP-125, 135, 145, 155, 165
PJ-175, 185, 190, 195 failed and bailed (did my best to control the weight on the way down).
First time exercise on the PJs so awful form. Some were little more than PPs with a little bit of dip to catch. I was moving the weight so I decided to try for ME rather than go low weight and dial in the exercise. Lesson learned.
Finished with 20 minutes of pull-up and chin-up sets ala "grease the groove" while watching the Mariners toss another one.
Not really clear on what a Push Jerk is. Maxed out at 150 on the pp
all from ground to over head. It would have been nice to drop weight from overhead..BUMPERSSSSSS
ran out of time. had to get to work.

pj-205-felt like spine was going to snap. terrible form so i dropped to 170 and worked form.
Warm-up: Various focus movements including a new personal record of 5 consecutive muscle-ups.
SP: 95, 100, 105, 110, 115
PP: 120, 125, 130, 135, 140
PJ: 145 (fail), 115 (technique felt all wrong so I dropped the weight to figure this movement outů), 95, 100, 115, 125, 135.
Finished with 5 more PJ reps at 95 for practice. I'll be adding the PJ to my list of "focus movements."
That was all I had. Darn near every muscle in my body hurt starting the workout, from DOMS, but I don't think it hurt my performance. That always amazes me.
First WOD back after rehabbing a pulled hammy. Did this one 8/25.
SP: 135, 145, 155, 165, 170
PP: 215, 225, 235, 245(tie PR), 255F.
Then, having never done push-jerk before I practiced the movement with the bar and then 135, doing both regular(non-split) and split-jerks. Didn't feel comfortable enough to try with heavy weight.
lost form badly on last two failed lifts, kept reverting to push press instead of push jerk. would have liked to have gotten at least two bills.

PP 145, 155, 165, 175, 185 (F)

Shoulder still unstable and I get a little concerned doing jerks with heavy weight so I dropped down and did some more push presses.
