Going Heavy Overhead

« | »

Watch videos linked to each exercise for proper form and movement.
Increase weight each round, to reach max load for each movement.Img_6229

Shoulder Press
3-3-3-3-3 Rep Rounds

Push Press
2-2-2-2-2 Rep Rounds

Push Jerk or Split Jerk
1-1-1-1-1 Rep Rounds

Each exercise,  getting loads to overhead, is increasingly more functional than the next.  When one fails at the first, the brain and body will naturally progress to the next in order to keep putting that weight over head.
