– Strength: Today we will build to a 3RM close grip floor press. This should take you 6-8 sets to build up to and your goal should be a 5# PR. Make sure you have a spotter and devise a good plan of how you are going to progress your build up to that PR. Having a plan helps to increase our chances of setting a new personal record. We last tested this on 2/15.
– Metcon: Nothing too complicated in today’s metcon. Today we have four, four-minute AMRAPs with one exercise each and these can be done in any order. You should be shooting for 50+ reps per AMRAP.
Close Grip Floor Press: 3RM. Rest 2:00
