WODprep Strategy Top Tips:

The overhead press can be a struggle for many athletes, but building it into your weekly training will help. If your confidence starts to struggle the heavier the weight get, part A is a great way to gain control and stability in your shoulders. Pressing the barbel overhead will become less scary over time.

For part B, it will be very tempting to go full send from the start, but as the reps are manageable, you’ll burn out real quick by minute 4. Remember, slow is fast, fast is slow. Stay in control of your pacing.
