Fitness and Advanced Strength

20 minutes to establish 1 rep max Press and 1 rep max Push Press

*with remaining time perform 2-3 sets of 30 Arch Rocks and 30 Hollow Rocks*

Notes:  Rest as needed between attempts.  For the Press, be sure to lock those knees and squeeze your butt tight to ensure that you don’t use your legs and to create a stable foundation.  For the push press, practice a good dip/drive position before loading up too heavy.  If you have a poor front rack position, spend extra time in your warmup, cool down and active recovery time to improve that position.  For the arch/hollow rocks, focus on keeping your body extended.  If you cannot perform a full body hollow rock, with arms and legs straight, hold static for :45 seconds each.
