Today we will introducing a new movement, floor press.  Upper body pressing is imperative to building strength and for now this is how we will achieve it.  Here is a quick video (you’re welcome Ben) and explanation, we will discuss in more detail in class.

“To set-up for the barbell version you will need a power rack (unless you have a training partner willing and able to deadlift the bar and hand it to you). Lying on the floor as you would on a bench with your shoulder blades pulled together, elbows tucked, back arched and feet flat you will un-rack the bar, lower it under control until your triceps touch the ground, pause for a split second and reverse the movement; simple as that.”

Here is a great article about why and how we should be training.  I try to install these same principles in our classes and if we approach our fitness from this mindset we will be good, like real good.
