Everything in Tuesday’s program is straight forward (we’ll see what the coaches throw out there for skill work/warm-ups). 5 sets of 5 reps on the press. Not a lot to it. Maintain that midline, move the face to keep the bar path vertical, and take 2 or 3 minutes between each set. For conditioning it’s burpee madness (also known as death by burpee). One movement increasing in number each minute. All you have to do is get on the ground, you will get back up. This workout is all about force of will, and if this past Saturday was any indication, you all have plenty of that, so let’s see how far you can go with this one.
