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?

Comment #2 - Posted by: Matthew Townsend at August 22, 2005 7:29 PM

what are the specifics of the shoulder press?

Comment #3 - Posted by: Andy at August 22, 2005 7:40 PM

so what's the difference between a push press and a shoulder press?

Comment #4 - Posted by: dan at August 22, 2005 7:40 PM

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!

Comment #7 - Posted by: Jesse Woody at August 22, 2005 7:47 PM

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.

Comment #12 - Posted by: John at August 22, 2005 9:50 PM

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.

Comment #14 - Posted by: Wade W. at August 22, 2005 11:20 PM

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.

Live strong

Question is everyone using the same hand spacing for all lifts? I was planning on using the grip I do cleans with. Thanks.

Too distracted and tired to safely put up more weight.

Comment #23 - Posted by: kelly moore at August 23, 2005 4:45 AM

Question...

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?

Worked my way up to 160 lbs. max. Failed at 165. Every movement from the floor.

Comment #26 - Posted by: Ted Zink at August 23, 2005 5:24 AM

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.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Jeff at August 23, 2005 5:34 AM

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):

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.

Should've rested more between sets. Need work on Push Jerk.

PP- 165/175/185/195/205
PJ- 215/225/235/245/255

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.

Comment #32 - Posted by: Manny P at August 23, 2005 7:24 AM

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?

Thanks

Comment #33 - Posted by: worm at August 23, 2005 7:39 AM

worm:

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?

Comment #36 - Posted by: jeremiah at August 23, 2005 8:18 AM

PP
225-230-235-240-245(f)-245(f)
All weights cleaned from deck. Cleaned 245 easily, but lacked the proper speed and power to lock it out today.

PJ
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.

Comment #40 - Posted by: steven stackpole at August 23, 2005 8:45 AM

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).

Fun WOD

Cheers, kempie

Comment #41 - Posted by: kempie at August 23, 2005 8:47 AM


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.

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: 40#, 40#, 40#, 40#, 40#
I tried 45# and failed.

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.

Comment #46 - Posted by: Leanne at August 23, 2005 9:17 AM

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)

Comment #47 - Posted by: pwoodruff at August 23, 2005 9:27 AM

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.

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.

"Big Darryl" needs to learn how to spell "CrossFit" and "a lot" while following the instrx for the WOD.

PP: 145/145/155/160/165
PJ: 175/175/185/195/195

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.

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

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.

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

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!!

Congrats Tom!

Bodyweight 140lbs
Shoulder Press: 65 - 85 - 95 - 105 - 115
Push Press: 105 - 115 - 125 - 125 - 130
Push Jerk: 115 - 120 - 125 - 130 - 135

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.

PJ 185, 195, 195, 200, 200 not very comfortable spliting my feet was not sure I could get out from under bar if I boffed the lift (at 24-hour fitness) so I was conservative. I get enough odd looks as it is.

PP: 175, 185, 195, 205, 215(pr)

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.

BW: 205

Still having problems with push jerk technique.

I'm in the military, and I was wondering what some of you guys do for workouts when you are on det.

Comment #77 - Posted by: steve at August 23, 2005 4:03 PM

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).

Dan,
Finally found Red Tail Ale. It should find my stomach in about 3 hours.
Diddy,
Shoulders were to ears at all times.

squat clean and push jerk practice with a bar. Need work on the grip transition.

Again, a little bit disappointed with today's progress.

SP - 65, 85, 95, 105 (barely), 110 (barely)
PP - 110, 115, 125, 135 (fail), 135 (fail)
PJ - 135 (fail), 115 (fail), 95, 105, 115, 125 (fail)

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.

135 x5

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.

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.

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.

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.

bodyweight = 115 lbs.

shoulder press: 45 - 50 - 55 - 55 - 55
push press: 55 - 55 - 60 - 60 - 60
push jerk: 60 - 60 - 65 - 65 - 65

Never did push press or push jerk before, so I can probably go higher once I get the hang of it.

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.

Comment #150 - Posted by: Barry Cooper at August 25, 2005 9:37 AM

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.

Comment #151 - Posted by: Andy S at August 25, 2005 10:48 AM

as RX'd:
BW:165
SP:65,85,95,105,115
PP:125,135,145,155,165
PJ:175,185,195,200(fail),195(fail)185,185

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.

Comment #152 - Posted by: stokedaddy at August 25, 2005 3:09 PM

SP 95, 115, 120, 125, 135
PP 145, 155, 165, 175, 185 (F)
PP 5 X 145
Shoulder still unstable and I get a little concerned doing jerks with heavy weight so I dropped down and did some more push presses.
Finished up with 10 sets of 12 on the minute, a Rutman mile and some farmers walk.

Comment #153 - Posted by: Jeff at August 25, 2005 5:59 PM

PJ: Used 80lbs to practice form.

Had problems doing the second dip on the Push Jerk at heavy weight, either it was a confidence issue with it being the first time or a case of MHF. Need to work on the Jerk!

Comment #164 - Posted by: TroyD at August 27, 2005 7:06 AM

Press x 5: up to 135, fail at 145
Push x 10: up to 185, fail on last 185
Jerk: Worked on form with empty bar up to 135

Also did 1-2 front squats prior to each rep of press, since I missed the squat workout the day prior.
