Scaling:
Newer athletes may benefit from practicing progressions to understand the timing of the movement. For more instruction, review “The Power of Progression, Part 1: Push Jerk.” Ideally, each set will be as heavy as possible for 3 reps, but newer athletes should start light and slowly add weight as they are comfortable.

Beginner Option:
10 minutes of push jerk progression practice.
Push press 3-3-3-1-1

The Lowly Push-Up Revisited

10

Watch any P.E. class, sports practice, or military training and you’ll likely see push-ups doled out like candy, usually in sets of 25 or more and often as punishment. Unfortunately, very few athletes have achieved push-up mastery. Read on for the lowdown on the push-up and a plan to help your athletes master this movement.

80kg x 3


Volviendo de una contractura en el hombro. Me sonaron todos los huesos, me hicieron liberacion en los tejidos blandoa y punción seca y hoy es el 2do entrenamiento virtualmente sin dolor. Con más confianza habría seguido subiendo u poco o repitiendo series de 3. Hoy en vambio después de tocar 80 1 vez, baje a 40kg y busqué ver si podía emcadenar 20 sin dolor. Salió todo bien, esriré despues de hacer algunos clean con mancuernas y db box step.

Glassman’s article defined CrossFit’s standard for the “perfect” or “honest” push-up as one that “moves slowly from full extension to a point of maximum depth without ‘reaching’ for the ground or perturbing the body’s taut, rigid, straight-line posture, and then returns rigidly to full extension.”


I really liked it! Thanks Stephane for bringing back the focus to the basics!

180-180 (no belt, rebound jerks)-185-190-200 (belted, reset most in jerk rack) all with lifting shoes, after bike interval WOD.The last rep at 200 felt surprisingly solid. Even did a pause jerk accidentally when I almost tried to rebound rep 2 and thought better of it in my dip after receiving rep 1.


A little more lightheaded than usual but all I’ve eaten today was an hour before this.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

Nothing to rant about


WORKOUT THEMES

High output followed by long rest. Jumping, core-to-extremity, and overhead position are also themes.


SHORT MEDIUM LONG


LIGHT


MEDIUM

x

HEAVY


SCALING FOR LIMITING FACTORS

Strength - same format, just to strict press or push press instead. Or hold the overhead landing position for a while each rep

Coordination - same format, but sets of 12+

Flexibility - same format, split jerks instead (if you want to avoid the flexibility)


MY STUFF

Did this two days ago with 165, did the 1-min sprints today


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 4

Commented on: The Lowly Push-Up Revisited

The push-up is one of my favorite movements to coach, and is crucial for developing strength and stability for more advanced movements such as dips and handstand push-ups. It's also one of the first exercises I assess with new athletes to gain a good idea of their midline stability and shoulder function.


My one contention with this article is that, while James Hobart's push-ups are good, they are far from the "perfect push-up." His feet are separated, which makes it impossible to create maximal tension in the legs and glutes, his hips aren't fully tucked to maintain a strong hollow position in the midsection, and he doesn't fully protract the shoulders at the top of the movement. Obviously, a "perfect push-up" is very difficult to achieve, but we should make sure we don't throw that term around unless the movement is near flawless.


Great article, Stephane!

Always appreciate a reminder on the basics of athleticism. It’s very easy to skim past these movements and treat them as simple warm up exercises, however, when applied executed correctly and with intention they can benefit athletes of abilities.
