Our strength portion is the Push Press today. Things are going to get heavy with your last set approaching your current 1 RM. This is the final week of the current cycle for this movement and next week we will be testing our 1RM Push Press. The workout is a burner with lots of DB cycling. It is a double AMRAP with one minute of rest in-between. That is not long. Your goal is a minimum of 1 round a minute. This will go quick and should be a great overall workout!
