Find 3RM Strict Press
*This is a simple lift, but technique can help soooo much. Here are 3 good tips: 1) Squeeze your whole body. Being tight and bracing goes a long way in a successful Press. 2) Forearms directly under the bar. You do not need your Front Squat front rack for this lift. 3) Once you pick up the bar, do not fool around with it. Get right to work.

50/35 Cal Bike or 60/40 Cal Row or Run 800m
*The Thruster weight should be something you can realistically move for sets of 10. Each section should see you fighting for 4-to-5 minutes. Go all out on those last cals/meters.
