Presses, push-presses and thrusters

Yesterday I had just enough time to work on pressing. I did some sets of three, up to 35, then did four singles at 39. Sometime early last year I had a 1RM press of 42. I’ll be back to that soon and hope to get 45. “Hope” is sort of silly with things like strength or guitar playing; train or practice is a better strategy!

Today we did a barbell complex: clean, then three push-presses, three front squats, three thrusters. Take turns and add weight until you can’t complete a complex. I got up to 45 kg without failing and it was time to quit. I think I could have done 50.
