Without dropping the bar, complete the following sequence, seven times:
Push Press (have bar land behind head, in rear-rack position);
Push-Press (have bar land on chest, in front-rack position).
Once you’ve completed the sequence seven times consecutively put down the bar. Rest. Add weight, attempt another sequence of 7. Repeat for a total of five rounds.
There is no time limit for this progression. It’s a strength and tenacity workout. Athletes may take as much time or as little time as needed between rounds.
Once a sequence of seven has been started it can’t be stopped. If you need to rest, you must do so with the bar on your back, your chest, or in your hands (bent over resting) – it may not rest on the ground.
Athletes are to START LIGHT, and add weight after each completed sequence of seven.
