do we perform these sitting or standing?

Comment #1 - Posted by: Kevin A. at August 17, 2006 7:14 PM

Standing

Comment #2 - Posted by: Travis L @ prosperity at August 17, 2006 7:29 PM

Standing is superior, due to the additional muscles involved in stabilizing the erect posture during the lift.

Comment #3 - Posted by: Nick C. at August 17, 2006 7:29 PM

Plus, standing is a much more functional movement.

I can't imagine many instances where you'd need to press something overhead while seated.

Comment #4 - Posted by: Russ T. at August 17, 2006 7:36 PM

i don't understand the 3 3 3 3 3 3 3, does that mean 21 total reps? how much weight? rest,etc?

Comment #5 - Posted by: joe c at August 17, 2006 7:40 PM

7 sets of 3 reps

This is a max effort workout; meaning that by the last set you should be doing the maximum weight you can three times in a row. SO -- don't forget to warm up.

Comment #6 - Posted by: MCC at August 17, 2006 7:45 PM

thank you, for your response, the only other question i have is how much rest between sets?

Comment #7 - Posted by: joe c at August 17, 2006 7:49 PM

2 minutes. Or more. Or less. You choose.

Comment #8 - Posted by: gaucoin at August 17, 2006 7:51 PM

Comment #9 - Posted by: wrs at August 17, 2006 7:56 PM

Shoulder Press means no body english/push pressing/split jerking/etc., right?

Comment #10 - Posted by: Deejay at August 17, 2006 7:56 PM

Yeah, no body english etc.

This is going to suck tomorrow after a confidence course in the morning and then today's workout. Seriously, who does 50 L-pullups?!?

Comment #11 - Posted by: rich at August 17, 2006 7:59 PM

Started with "Elizabeth" (I've missed that WOD several times) - 85# squat cleans and ring dips. 10:05; a PR by almost 1:20. MUCH better squat clean form since the Atlanta certification. Arms locked and rings turned at support. Many thanks to the Atlanta Coaches!

Today's WOD:

85/85/95/95/100/100/105 - strict presses - bar started touching collarbones each rep; arms locked out and no lower body momentum.

Comment #12 - Posted by: kelly moore at August 17, 2006 8:02 PM

Nice work George! Great meeting you and hope to see you again soon.

Comment #13 - Posted by: nicole at August 17, 2006 8:07 PM

Can someone explain how to do a shoulder press without pressing? I am confused... Thanks.

Comment #14 - Posted by: NAVAFIT at August 17, 2006 8:25 PM

NAVAFIT, it's not a press without a press, it's a press without using the legs. Basically it's a standing military press. Rack the bar, and then just press it, don't use the legs for anything other than standing.

Comment #15 - Posted by: Josh Brehm at August 17, 2006 8:30 PM

Made up 7x3 OHS, then todays 7x3 Shoulder Press.

Strict Military Press(feet together, standing):
135x3, 155x3, (175x3)x3, 155x3, 155x3, 135x5

No pushing the press, no jerking the lockout.

Note to self, don't ME OHS after high rep good morning WODs. I kept falling forward. Details on that WOD page.

Comment #16 - Posted by: Andy Shirley at August 17, 2006 8:30 PM

How do you keep your back from arching like a banana? There was a ton of tension in my lumbar.

Comment #17 - Posted by: wich at August 17, 2006 8:41 PM

#17 wich, to keep your back from arching clench your abs throughout the exercise, as well as tightening your rear. That usually does a pretty good job of keeping my back where it's suppose to be.

Travis: 95/105/115/120(x2,f)/115/120/120
got a little sloppy on the last rep, was more push press.
Rob: 95/105/115/125/135/145/150
last set a little off, pretty good overall

Comment #18 - Posted by: Travis L @ prosperity at August 17, 2006 9:23 PM

Oh, and Kelly, nice shoes in the pic!!

Comment #19 - Posted by: Travis L @ prosperity at August 17, 2006 9:25 PM

Do use one weight the entire way through shoulder press workout? Or do you start at a lower weight and go up each set maxing out at the end? How do you determine what weight to start with?

Comment #20 - Posted by: Steve at August 17, 2006 9:50 PM

Athletes sit between sets, others train sitting.

Comment #21 - Posted by: paul arestan at August 17, 2006 10:06 PM

Starting fresh, have moved to a new area and have limited equipment. Pretty much just he basic weight room set up. I wanted to know if any one has created a list of substitions for exercise if certain equipment are not available. i.e. medicine balls, kettle weights, rowing machine. I am 5'7 and 245 pounds and want to lose a minimum of 50 lbs. I would like some info on cardio machines such as treadmill vs. elipticle machines. I know diet is a big part and I am still researching that area to develope the best plan for me. Your input is greatly appreciated. Also anyone in Kuwait that is following this, I would like to meet or talk too also.

Comment #22 - Posted by: dustan at August 17, 2006 11:01 PM

I am all for not using the legs for the press as mine are killing me from yesterday. I did thrusters with my legs a bit wider than normal squats I guess. Because it is the outside of my legs that hurt, I obviously haven't been using those muscles very much.

Comment #23 - Posted by: Jim M at August 17, 2006 11:20 PM

I believe you should all be aiming to use between 80 and 90% of your 1RM for the press, for each set of this workout.

i.e. for maximum benefit, if I could Strict Press 100kg, I would perform the workout as 7x3 at 80-90kg.

Juz to help anyone questioning what kinda weight to use :)

Hope that helps clarify to those needing aid.

Comment #25 - Posted by: Orrin at August 17, 2006 11:46 PM

dustan, try the zone diet as supported by CF...

Comment #26 - Posted by: charlie at August 18, 2006 1:03 AM

There are a lot of substitutions on the FAQ sections. However, here goes:

Wall ball shots - Barbell or Dumbbell Thrusters
Rowing - if its 500m, 400m run or you can do sumo deadlift high pulls

Kettlebells - again barbell or dumbbells

Rope climbs - towel or do like we do, attach a rope to a free-standing punch bag holder

Oh and by the way - elliptical machines are the biggest waste of time. I was reading articles on some people who sub a run for the elliptical machine to train up for their military exams and failed. I could do four hours on an elliptical machine, but can kill myself and get stronger in a 20 minute run over that.

Yes, diet is important. I loosely follow the zone diet. The porridge meal is pretty good. However, if you want to gradually implement it - cut out the fats and sugars first. No processed crap like cookies, chips (crisps) are the worst thing in the world, pastries, and I don't care what Starbucks says, their muffins, frappuccinos are full of crap (most muffins are 600 calories, while frappuccinos have almost a full day of calories at 1,300 - 1,500 a drink!).

Hope this helps. I'm just adding my rings to my cross fit gym and then I'll send cross fit a picture of the smallest CF gym in the world. Takes up around 8 ft. by 8 ft. space.

Comment #27 - Posted by: Christina Sklebar at August 18, 2006 2:50 AM

CFWU x 1

3x50 kg
6x3x55 kg

Quite disappointing as I have a PR of 65 kg, but then again: I've been having the fewer all night.

Finished off with some weighted dips and pull ups (+30% bw) and some deadlifts. Took a new PR with additional 10 kgs. Deadlifting is apparantly not affected by fewer.

Right on! It's refreshing to see this kind of thinking vis-a-vis diet and. I wish everyone was aware of how much crap, both exercise and diet, is proffered to us though the media. If Americans ate healthy you could fit a grocery store in a double-car garage.

#44 (steve25scotland)
It's up to each athlete to determine when to do the WOD (or if to do it at all). That said, you have *my* permission to take today off and do today's WOD tomorrow. OR, you could just wait on today's WOD.
As I read a few days ago, "you don't owe CrossFit makeup homework." So, listen to the other stresses in your life and do what you can.

Comment #79 - Posted by: Sara-cuse at August 18, 2006 9:07 AM

It would be great if the Exercises page had videos displaying every WOD spelled the exact same way, to avoid any confusion.

I've noticed this problem more than once, and I think it could be easily solved, and make this an even better website.

Comment #80 - Posted by: Jared at August 18, 2006 9:28 AM

Sorry, just to clarify: I think the WOD excercise should be spelled exactly the same as the corresponding exercise video/slide show.

For example, today's WOD is "Shoulder Press." No "Shoulder Press" on the Exercises page, but there is "Presses" which seems to be the right exercise.

My point is that this is somewhat confusing.

This is kind of pathetic since I used to be able to press bodyweight for reps. But then again, I used to be a competitive athlete. I have to quit comparing myself now to myself without a wife, job, graduate school, and assorted nagging injuries.

Haven't pressed in years, so CF must be doing *something* to keep me from falling apart...

Jared, Jared, Jared, go back and watch the video, this time - the whole thing. Tell me if you don't get more out of watching it than staring at the title.

You had me worried that we'd misspelled something. I'll take your input though, and get a stand alone shoulder press video.

The only obvious typo on the exercises page is in the URL: "http://www.crossfit.com/cf-info/excercise.html"

Looking forward to the WOD. Haven't done these in a long, long time. Behind the head is bad for the shoulders, no?

pretty much went through motions with light weight due to shoulder pain. Then started rotator cuff strenthening exercises to hopefuly deal with the pain. This in addition to adduction/abduction exercises for hip injury. I will get myself whole soon. Jim

First WOD for me ever was today.

CFWUx3

45x3
65x3
75x3
80x3
80x2 - I think I went up in weight too fast
80x2 - 3rd rep would have been bad form (banana)
70x3 - went down in weigh to get 3 reps

I'm very excited to start. I was an serious "weight lifter" but stopped about 2.5 years ago. Looking back, I was lifting weights for all the wrong reasons. At that time I also stopped my Krav Maga training. I'm stoked to have found this community, and to start some functional training!

Ran a mile ... then did 75, 85, 95, 100, 110, 110, 110.

Dropped the weight on the last set and got yelled at. I also got yelled at the other day for breaking a sweat.

Hey, go easy on the guy coach ... he only has to watch the first 8 seconds to see the shoulder press!

Since my shoulder wouldn't let me press a broomstick without pain right now, have to sit this one out :o(

Comment #122 - Posted by: John Rippon, NZ at August 18, 2006 1:15 PM

No weights today so I subbed HSPU with hands on blocks.
Increasded the size of the blocks until forehead could no longer touch the floor. Then brought hands down to shoulders as much as possible.(This was brutal)
Was able to get one full set of 3 going all the way down to shoulders.

Jared, if you dont know how to do a shoulder press...do yourself and your shoulders a favor and hire a good personal trainer (crossfit one) who can show you proper form before you injure yourself. Not being mean but don't be afraid to ask for help, we all should do that more often.

-Additional 8 sets of front military presses as well: 45lbs up through 135lbs (push-presses).

Comment #133 - Posted by: Brand at August 18, 2006 2:15 PM

I think Jared is saying he saw "shoulder press" as the WOD, went to look under exercises for the "shoulder press" video, and didn't find it because it's under "presses" with no reference to shoulder. That's what happened to me.

Absolutely exhausted this week. BJJ has been a real killer. Normally, I could do at least 40 kg., but I have exhausted my muscles this week. The L pull ups killed my shoulders as they took so long just to keep the form. In kilos:

3 x 20 (warm up reps)
3 x 30
1 x 35 (fail)
3 x 30
3 x 30

After that, I couldn't even lift it.

While I didn't jerk or use my legs, on the last rep, I felt myself slipping into the old-fashioned Olympic Press form, i.e. leaning back to get the pects engaged. Since this is not the goal of this workout, and it was the last set, I stopped.

It's not that I don't know how to do a shoulder press correctly, or that I don't get anything out of watching the whole video, it's just that there often is a spelling discrepancy between the WOD and the corresponding exercise.

I'm a technical writer, so I'm a big believer in consistency. My only point is that I think many people (myself included) would benefit from having the WOD and the corresponding exercise be spelled exactly the same way. Better yet, simply link the WOD to the corresponding exercise video so all I have to do is click it to view the video.

Just trying to help make this a better site.

Shoulder is still a bit weak from injury. Doing these as light push presses and good negatives, plus a few lockouts.

85,(strict) 95 (strict), 105 (left shoulder won't do this without help, begin pp now), 110, 115, 120, 125

BW = 170

-> 115 lbs

What a difference no jerking/pp makes.

I actually did them seated, so I wouldn't cheat with the legs.
