This is the second part of Episode 3 of the Boz and Todd Experience. This session took place at Black and Gold CrossFit in West Point, NY on April 25th and 26th, 2009.
In this episode, Boz coaches Ashley on her presses as a complement to the pull-up work she did in Part 1. Ashley is a multisport athlete, competing in Olympic-style weightlifting, track (heptathlon), and rugby for the US Military Academy at West Point. Her best lifts are about 155lbs in the snatch and about 200lbs in the clean and jerk. She is a strong, all around athlete.
Boz finishes up the pressing session with an explanation of putting delts on a pencil before putting Ashley through a quick couplet:
15 DB push jerks / 15 Burpee pull-ups
10 DB push jerks / 10 Burpee pull-ups
Ashley has done a lot of strength work earlier in the session, and has a program to follow to further develop her upper body capacity. In the workout, she doesn’t achieve full range of motion on all her reps. Boz explains after she’s done why he didn’t stop her and enforce the complete ROM.
