Joel setting up for some SDLHPs.

Today we'll be trying out the Sotts Press. I know some of you have played with this recently. The Sotts press is a press initiated from the bottom of the squat position. It can be done with a barbell, dumbells, or kettlebells. When performed with a barbell, as we'll do today, we'll use the snatch grip. As with any new skill, you'll start with the PVC and slowly move up.

Check out this link for Sotts Press instruction by Coach B and a demo by Kelly Starrett (have you been checking out his MobilityWOD site – it may help with those tight shoulders!).

  1. I hope you all are doing well. I can’t wait to get back into the gym to see all of you. Keep up all the hard work and I will see you in 2 days!

  2. WAIT A SECOND… I was just looking at the pictures from Aug, and I saw some people that I haven’t met… I have a problem with this. 🙁 We need to have a CF-E GET TOGETHER! 🙂 Any ideas?

  3. Thanks Juli! We’ve posted a video from there recently and we’ve been using the things KStarr teaches through the videos a bunch lately. He’s great at that and we get more grunts and groans from those movements than from the WODs some days!

  4. Kelley, you’re right there are some new folks. It’s crazy how some of you will go months without meeting.
    What better way to meet than to go to the paleo challenge kick-off on Tuesday the 28th at 6:30 PM (shameless plug!).

  5. Kelley, I agree! Maybe we can do a BBQ at a park, like a paleo potluck 🙂 Or maybe after the challenge is over we can all get together and celebrate somewhere.
