Push Pressin’

Thursday’s our heavy day this week.  We’re still working on kipping pull-ups, and we’ve got a box jump conditioning workout we’ve done before, but the star of the show tomorrow is the push press.  The push press is a great movement for improving core to extremity strength, and it does so dynamically.  The drive in dip-drive-press is fast and aggressive.  This not only develops the kind of strength we’re after, but also develops a great deal of power.  That drive comes from the hips, the strength of which will help us to do all kinds of other fun athletic things, like max rep box jumps.

Thursday is day 21 of the 100 Burpee Challenge.  The going rate to get in is 231 burpees.

The Sox have one more home game against the snakes on Thursday.  The Red Sox were even nice enough to move the start time up an hour, so the busy Boston sports fan can catch the game, and then flip over to watch the Celtics game 7.  Long story short, no parking during the Thursday evening classes
