Here's a good video comparison between shoulder press, push press, and push jerk:

Big PR for me. Previous 1RM was 145.

The last time I did a strict shoulder press was on a CF Total in March and my 1RM was 135. HUGE improvement for me.

I need a spot on both 155lbers

SB said...

135 (PR)
tried 145 but needed NM's spot.
Last time we did this workout (AUG08), i did 95lbs so pretty happy with results.

Huge THS for me this morning.

Maxed out at 145. My 1RM is 155 so this is still okay, I just didn't feel great today.

I am sure I am not the only one that the only one that noticed this morning, but as we came into the CF room, there was a bar in the middle with someone's deadlift weight from yesterday on it. This is not a huge problem yet so I want to nip it right now. If you use the '62 CF room, when you are done, put your weights, blocks, collars, rings etc...back where you found them. Many folks spent a lot of time and effort to make sure we have this facility, we don't want to screw it up. We as a CF community police ourselves, it is one of the most important parts of CF. So if you see someone not taking care of the equipment, it is your reponsibility to make sure that they do. If they give you grief, let me or one of the other trainers know, and we'll take care of it. Bottom line, be good stewards of our gear and room. Okay, I'm down off my box.

Weakness on my part today also. Should be at 145, but it will come back with time.

Maj said...

45, 75, 95, 125, 135, 155(F)

Jimmy said...

95 (test)
115 (test)
1. 135
2. 145
3. 150
4. 150 (struggled but got it)
5. 150 (felt better on last round-assumption is that I mentally knew I would be done)

This WOD truly demonstrates the efficiency of push and jerk press... Getting momentum on the bar is a huge mechanical advantage

NM said...


To reinforce MAJ Blackmon's comments...thanks for keeping our facility straight. B&G CrossFit clearly has the spotlight right now when it comes to physical fitness at West Point...let's continue to set a good example for everyone else so that we can build on the foundation built thusfar. First, it will translate into a good reputation which is, obviously, very important. Second, it will translate into potential expansion of both space and equipment which will benefit everyone. Thanks again for your help...and see you tomorrow AM at CF Friday! MAJ Mayo

65-75-85-95-105(small help on the very last rep)

AL said...


Really underestimated this one. Train Wreck had to help with the last set.

Grenade said...

95 x 3
105 x 3
115 x 3
135 x 3
150 failed
140 x 3
I probably should have started out heavier b/c the first 2 set were kind of easy.

Didn't hit failure had to go for 6th set
