Heavy day, Push Presses

IRIDIUM CrossFit – CrossFit

Target Load | Athletes should start their first set around 70% of their best push press. This weight should feel like something you can lift for 7-8 reps, but no more.
• Increase load across each set. The goal is to hit your heaviest set of five reps on set four. This gives you one more set to make any corrections or adjustments if something goes wrong. We want to finish on a positive
note.
