The goal is a heavy set of 5, a heavy set of 4, a heavy set of 3, a heavy double, then a heavy single. It does not have to be a 1RM attempt, but if you are feeling good today, go for it! Even if you need to do a couple extra singles. As always, with Push Press, you should see a significant increase of weight you can handle vs. the weight you used for Strict Press. With Push Press, getting a powerful dip, and then drive with the hips should get the bar moving fast! Best way to avoid the re-bend of the knees is to squeeze your butt as you extend the hips and knees. This should keep them good and straight as your press HARD!
