About the wod
Background: This workout was originally done as a hypertrophy/accessory workout. I liked the pump in my shoulders and traps so I lowered the weight to get a little more volume and turned it into an AMRAP. The original workout was:
4 Rounds for Time
10 Push Presses (135/95 lb)
15 Kettlebell Swings (32/24 kg)
Rest 2 minutes between each round
Intended Stimulus: Another couplet to focus on midline stability but also gets the shoulders burning, especially with the American swings.
Strategy: The strict press tests shoulder stamina, so if overhead is not your thing, scale to a lower weight or rest briefly in the front rack. Scale the kb weight to a weight you can do unbroken every set.
