Want to make sure you do some presses that don’t include the lower body? Have a seat! New member and UCF lacrosse player Sarah working on building upper body strength.

E2MOM (every second minute on the minute) for 20 minutes:
Perform 6 push presses from the rack. Go as heavy as you can, aim to increase weight each of the last 5 rounds or so, ending with a 6 rep max. Warm-up before the E2MOM starts so you don’t start too light. Remember, one of the ways we build strength is by doing a good amount of volume at heavy weight. We don’t build strength by doing 8 light rounds and then making huge jumps and making only the last two rounds challenging, that’s how we get hurt.
