The press is the oldest barbell exercise in the gym and is often less appreciated than its close relative, the bench press. Picking a weight up and pressing it overhead is such a basic and natural movement for humans. Putting items of a variety of weights onto a high shelf in our home is just one of the many examples of the press in everyday life. The heavier the weight the greater the need to use our hips and legs, hence the progression from Strict Press to Push Press to Push Jerk. Following our strength piece is a couplet of calories on the bike and sit-ups. The 8 minute time domain is a nice compliment to the 20 minute time domain of Cindy from yesterday.
