Floor Press


Increase weight ea set

Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ.  Third time hitting the Floor Press this cycle.  This is an awesome Bench variation if you are in a gym with limited numbers of benches.  Many of the same rules for Bench apply here: Keep shoulder blades connected to the surface below you.  Let the elbows drop straight down (not at an angle), and keep the but planted at all times.  You can have the legs completely straight, or bend the knees so your feet are flat on the ground.  Either team up and have your partner deadlift the bar into position every set, or do these out of the rack.  With the reps going down this week, aim to go heavier per set compared to the 3X5 week.
