We will be setting our 3 rep max Floor Press today in order to setup our new strength cycle. This lift is great for building raw pushing power, and is one of the few fully dead lifts we do at Hyalite CrossFit.
You will be laying on your back on the floor with your grip on the bar set similarly to your Push-Up position. You will lower the bar slowly allowing your elbows and triceps to rest completely on the ground for a moment. Then, once the weight is completely still and free of any momentum, you will press the bar straight up.
It sounds simplistic, and that is because it is exactly that. There is no hip extension to reach, no focus on keeping your weight in your heels, no need for focus on much other than lowering slowly and pressing hard. It is important to lower slowly because the ground does not give once your elbows stop, which means that wrist damage is possible when too much speed is applied.
Let's avoid injury and develop some incredibly powerful chest muscles!
Love you bye!
