Video courtesy of CrossFit HQ.  Our pressing movement for this cycle will be the Strict Press.  Set the feet shoulder distance, knees locked out, ribs tucked in, and elbows down and in front of the bar prior to pressing.  Prior to the start of the press, squeeze your butt.  This will help keep the legs locked out.  Any bounce in the knees makes this a Push Pres, which is not the goal this cycle.
