About how much weight should we be putting on for this press?
And does it increase from each set of 2?

Gotta think about this one some. Back in a bit.

Comment #2 - Posted by: bingo at January 22, 2012 5:18 PM

Made up Friday's workout this afternoon, with this variation:

3 rounds of:

row for 4 minutes
50 squats
35 presses with 30# bar
15 pull-ups

Yes, I loved my level 1 cert in Charlotte NC this weekend! I learned SO much, met awesome seminar trainers, and met great fellow crossfitters.

Comment #6 - Posted by: Jenny at January 22, 2012 6:05 PM

Although it doesn't say explicitly, I thought the 10x2 scheme with 1min rest was supposed to be a dynamic effort (Westside) style session where you concentrate on acceleration and bar speed, not looking for a 2RM at all. Any thoughts?

Comment #7 - Posted by: sixer m/34/5'9"/160 at January 22, 2012 6:08 PM

Press?? Push press? Shoulder press? Bench press? Help please!!

Comment #8 - Posted by: Jayme at January 22, 2012 6:08 PM

bingo, westside barbell, dynamic day, focus on bar speed

certainly other ways to attack this

but my interpretation is WSB

Comment #9 - Posted by: Mel/38m/5'10"/175 at January 22, 2012 6:11 PM

Jayme, it's shoulder press.

Comment #10 - Posted by: Kenny at January 22, 2012 6:15 PM

I took my own advice and channeled my inner Newbie. I watched the video and did a bit of a search. I was only able to find one other similar WOD (I'm sure there were others). As I've done all month I will offer up some thoughts on how Newbies, CrossFitters with limited experience, and specifically any of you here with minimal experience with strength programs.

This is a mono-structural (one exercise) strength day. Done properly these are just as tough as, if not tougher, than any of our CF met-con WOD's. If you apply yourself and apply intensity you should be both mentally and physically fried at the end.

As always you should do some kind of warm-up. This is a perfect opportunity to do the CrossFit warm-up. After your general warm-up do some technique work to dial in your shoulder press using lighter weight.

We are doing 10 sets of the Press, short for Shoulder Press. Take the weight from a stand or squat apparatus. Begin with the weight in the front rack position. This is a pure overhead shoulder press with NO input from either the hips or the legs. Each set is 2 consecutive reps without putting the weight down or back on the stand. Using your legs or hips, or failing to lock out your elbows is a "no rep". As soon as you put the bar back on the stand hit your stopwatch; rest precisely 60 second between sets. The entire workout will be <20:00.

Where should you start? How much weight should you add as you go along? Both of these questions depend on how much experience you have with strength training in general and the shoulder press in particular. If you are reading this post you are probably too inexperienced to do a "straight across" WOD like the athletes at Potomac CrossFit where each set is a fixed number, typically ~90% of your 1 rep max. Newbies of all shapes and sizes should be doing "ascending sets" where you increase the weight in each set until you fail.

Start at a number that will put you at what should be your 1 rep max (not a typo) for 2 reps in round 8 if you add 5# each round. For example, if you think your 1 rep max is 100# your first 8 rounds should be something like 65-70- 75-80-85-90-95-100. Underestimate yourself and make it all the way easily? Cool...keep adding 5# two more times. Over-reach? No worries. When you fail a weight drop down to the last weight you successfully lifted twice and try to carry that one through to the end.

This is a pretty intense WOD. Spend a little bit of time thinking about your weights before you start.

Ready to get strong? 3-2-1...Go.

Comment #11 - Posted by: bingo at January 22, 2012 6:33 PM

Newbie post somewhere...

The video posted gives us the clue as to what newcomers and less experienced CrossFitters should do. If they wanted all of us, even those of us with little or no experience, to do a Westside session (bar acceleration) we would have had a video showing that (as we did with a 2-2...2 Back Squat previously).

If you are very experienced with strength training, know all of your maxes and can choose the appropriate %'s of your maxes, sure, channel your inner Louie.

You vs. you.

Who is the oldest person on cross fit? I don't see a lot of old timers posting their ages. I'm 54 but I work out with an incredibly fit 62 year old. Let's here from some other cross fitters who are defying age with fitness

Went to the cert at Wasatch and it entirely exceeded my expectations. Not only was it extremely informative, but to have Chris Spealler and Matt Chan both at the same cert, are you for real? It was a great experience. But don't forget Eric, Erik, Abi and Bozman. They were all awesome and so well informed. I'm grateful to be part of such an awesome community - Dustin

official Crossfit warm up, leaving out sit up due to psoas injury. Samson stretches also reduced range of motion, but much, much better than yesterday.

1 rep max = 52,5, so started at 40kg

40-40-40-45-45-45-47.5-47.5-47.5-47.50 ( but failed 2nd rep on last set.

finished with static bar holds and basic flag and thruster practise.

did 130 through out the whole workout, except for round 4 which i tried 135, but couldn't get up the second time, so went back down.

Then did 10 minutes, on the minute, 5 pull ups with the vest, then 5 bastard lunges each leg. Could have done more.

May do more later today.

Comment #53 - Posted by: bingo at January 23, 2012 7:58 AM

I believe for this workout it's best to do this at a straight across 55-65% 1RM for the weight due to the 60 seconds forced rest. This is just like a Dynamic Effort day on the starting strength system in other words. A Max Effort day wouldn't have the forced rest period.

Hmmm...just so happens I found my 1RM (175#) on 13 Jan while doing a WOD from CF Strength. 90% of that is 157.5#.

Based (more or less) on bingo's recommendation, I'll try:
115/125/135/145/150/155/160/165 for my first 8 sets. We'll see what happens after that. Wish me luck....

If this is supposed to be an version of WSB than you do NOT go up in weight. You maintain the same weight which is between 55-65% of your 1RM and work on speed through the movement.

Nick 71, everyone agrees. IF this is a WSB version. The video above has aspects of WSB (straight across), and aspects of classic CF strength WOD's(>65% 1RM, no mention or demonstration of accentuating bar speed).

If you are new and have never done WSB it behooves you to consider this another CF-style WOD. If you have done WSB and recognize the pattern, and if it is consistent with your present CF goals, do a WSB version.

You vs. you.

Thanks Russell, Nicole, Jenny, Sarah, Bobbi and Coach Andy. The CrossFit Level 1 Cert in Charlotte was excellent. I took home more than I ever anticipated. I wish the best to all who were there.

43/m/176cm/73kg

Did 15 rounds
5x2@55kg, 5x2@50kg, 5x2@45kg

Started with 55 kg for 5 rounds and could have continued, but that felt too slow, so I lowered the weight to 50 kg which was faster. Did the last 5 rounds with 45 kg in about 5 seconds per round, whereas the 55 kg rounds took me about 8 seconds each.

Guess I need to decide before I start next time wether to go heavy or to go fast.

@Keith Costello: There are a bunch of articles in the CF Journal by and about older crossfit athletes. Look up Jimmy Baker. And I really liked the John Wopat interview 2-3 years back. Haven't seen him post in a long time though. I've scaled way back due to exercised induced AFIB but I plan to get that taken care of in the near future. 2 1/2 years ago I did a 14 round Cindy, had a CFT of 670: 315 DL, 125 OP, 235 BS. I can do 6 reps of 12 Kg weighted dead hang pull-ups. I'd like to get a muscle up but that'll have to wait. I hope to be in better shape at 70 than I was at 60, after I fix the afib thing.

Comment #97 - Posted by: Rob M at January 23, 2012 1:10 PM

for wrists also make sure not to bend them, they need to be straight up and down--not having the bar behind the wrists. If you user wrist wraps make sure they are covering both the hand side and arm side of the joint as otherwise it is not stabilizing anything.

Also it's best if you avoid them if your wrists don't give you issues, as this will strengthen your wrists if you Don't use wrist wraps.

Comment #155 - Posted by: leviathan93 at January 23, 2012 6:54 PM

@lanceC generally good. I don eat as clean as I should bc of the puerto rican wife that cooks most nights. Now that she is in school at night I have more control over dinner. I have protein shakes for breakfast or toast with some egg whites most days. For lunch a nutrilite meal bar and a protein shake. Today i grilled chicken breast on the foreman and had a said with fat free dressing. I think my body doesn't know how to react to my legs gaining so much muscles. I never worked out legs and when I did it was running for soccer. I think it's my leg muscles that are restricting the weight loss

Resting 60 seconds between sets:
Press 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2

Did as a Dynamic Effort day @ 120lb every rep.
Followed up with 2@145lb and 2@150lb. The 150 felt light. Last iteration of this wod I worked up from 115 lbs and ended up failing @ 150lb. I'll take a little more progress any day.

I want to send out a big "Thank You" to Russell, Sara, Nicole, Jenny, Bobbi and who could forget Coach Andy. Hell Yeah!! The CrossFit Level 1 Cert in Charlotte was awesome. Very informative and extremely fun! I met some very nice people there, and had a blast doing Fran with other Crossfitters for a change. The cold sucked but it was nothing new, due to having a garage gym and training outside for every wod. Could've done without the rain though. Best of luck to you all!

From 100 lbs on pr.

My shoulder has been feeling a little weird, but I'm trying to take some advice from K-Star and fix my injury while training. I was able to do more than I thought I would. Tried to take care of myself afterward. We'll see how it feels tomorrow. So far it seems alright.

As Rx: (I was pissed.. I was hoping for 135 lbs).. I can do that for singles always. I was just not feeling it.. and my left trap was SUPER tight.. I think I pulled a little something in my neck in the early rounds.

125 lbs x 1 (fail - did 2nd with a PP)

took a few minutes rest and did high box jumps
P.R. with 46".. and I was feeling tight in my lower back when I would dip down to bounce/ jump up. I'm looking forward to 4' sometime soon I hope... it's so mental. I was kind of psyched out of the 46 when I walked up to it at first, but then just walked up and did it like 5 times.
NOT happy with my press WOD, but I've been PRing all over the place.. I don't do much press work.. I should. I do more PP & PJ work... the press is the basis.. can't get away from that.

Felt like I was getting sloppy @ 155--looked more like a push press.
