Final time hitting our Push Press before we retest our 5X%. Today, the goal is a heavy set of 5, followed by a heavier set of 4, then a heavier set of 3, followed by a heavier double, and finishing with a heavy single for the day. If that heavy single is a new 1RM, cool! If not, make it as heavy as you can safely do it for today.

Bracing your core will make or break this WOD today. Bracing in the Ski Erg will allow you to pull down harder on the movement, getting through the Cals faster. Bracing on the Hand-release Push ups will keep your body in a straight line and save undue strain on the back. Finally, a braced core in the KB Swings will also keep your back safe with the heavier load and make the movement more efficient.
