Synchronized PVC dancing is a fantastic warm-up.

The behind the neck snatch grip push press can be a tricky movement in the beginning. It’s not so much getting the bar overhead, but bringing it back down to the starting position. Here are some words of wisdom from Josh:

Careful on the neck when receiving the load from overhead, try to absorb shock without bowing or flexing lumbar region. Try to come on to toes when the bar is coming down from overhead, meet the bar with the traps and adsorb the impact by bending the knees.

Often times we’re so focused on getting the weight to the overhead position that we don’t consider bringing it back down. No problem if you’re doing singles, you can drop it from the top. That won’t work for working up to a double today. Take a few practice reps to get the feel for it. If things are feeling good, add load. If not, spend some time getting it right.
