This week we will start off with a classic strength combination — a Press and Push Press for 5 sets of 3 reps. Athletes will complete 5 full sets of 3 on the Press before moving on to 5 full sets of 3 reps on the Push Press (not supersetted). Although we have 10 sets of 3 in total, make sure to take  your time in between sets of their working weights — roughly 2 minutes!

The Press is with no use of the legs, also considered the Strict Press or Military Press. Many people may or may not know their current Press max. If they do, they can either work up to about 90% over 5 working sets, or maintain around 85% for 5 sets of 3. If they have never maxed out their Press before, either as a 1 RM or 3 RM, use this as an opportunity to find it today and have them build up to a heavy triple over 5 sets.

Go heavy but still make it pretty.

The strength days are important.
