Post Press Loads and Metcon Time to Comments
For the strength segment, you will do three warmup sets for the Press followed by three work sets at 75% 1RM.  Note that the third work set is performed for max reps at 75% 1RM.  This is a new twist on our strength programming.  Use common sense, good judgement, for all lifts.  When in doubt, live to lift again another day.  Presses must be performed to full elbow and shoulder extension at lockout. 

For the metcon, use a barbell for the Thrusters at 50% of your PUSH PRESS 1RM.  Do not use a rack….bar must be cleaned from the floor.  This is RX’d for the WOD in order to ensure proper movement execution and to maximize power output and intensity. 

*SURVEY QUESTION OF THE DAY*
If you normally come out to the Sunday WODs would you prefer that they were held earlier in the day or are they just right at 11am and 12pm?  Please post answer to comments.
