Are the percentags for the push press from a press max or a push press max?


Cullen Foresman 2008-12-21
Greg, do you and Aimee still assist Mike Burgener at the crossfit olympic lifting certs? I've been wanting to go to one of yours, but just discovered there is a crossfit one scheduled here in tucson in february and promptly registered. This will be my first real personal instruction in the lifts and despite doing them for a while I still consider myself a beginner. Do you suggest I make any changes in my training between now and then, or have any other advice to help me get the most out of the seminar?

Greg Everett 2008-12-22
Kevin - Push press - always of the associated lift unless noted otherwise.
Greg Everett 2008-12-22
Cullen - We don't. The best thing you can do between now and the seminar is work on your flexibility - particularly dial in your overhead and front squat. Don't worry about much else - you're going so you can have Coach Burgener instruct you - the blanker the slate, the better. But having the flexibility necessary to hit the positions will allow you to really go through the learning progressions and get squared away.

Thank you for the advice, sorry I won't be seeing you guys there.

Well today was my first day transitioning to a high bar, olympic style squat. I had to take a big slash in my ego and about 20 lbs off the bar in order to perform the reps today. I can see how it works more of the thighs and keeps you in that upright stance but it is still a difficult change from my powerlifting low bar stance. With a little work the numbers should come...

BS: 280x2+1 (first set high bar, feeling a little to close to max.) 260x3x4
Cl DL: 305x3x3
Push Press: 185x5x5 (last set missed the last rep, tri's smoked)
Bent Row: 135x8x1, 185x8x2 (out of time)

All weights in KG except as noted:
Back squat - 102 x 3 x 5
Clean deadlift - 100 x 3 x 3
Push press - 67.5 x 5 x 5
Bent row - 60 lb DBs; 45 lb DB x 8 x 3
Weighted GHD sit-ups - 3 x 6 could only do 10 lb DB behind the neck cuz my abs are still torn up from Sat.

It was mentally hard to get under heavy weight today. I tried every excuse, even getting actual work done, but eventually, finished.
