The Seated Press

Rachel and Kate

The seated press, as shown above, is a challenging exercise requiring great core strength. When fatigue sets in during a workout in which a standing shoulder press is prescribed, it is extremely difficult to not push press instead by bending the knees to create a dip and driving the weigh overhead. Therefore, the seated press is a challenging way to do a strict shoulder press. It demands amazing core strength, flexibility and shoulder strength.


Five Rounds:

2 minute max seated press (men use 45 pounds, ladies use 33 pounds)
2 minute max rope climbs
2 minutes rest

Try to maintain the same number of reps and rope climbs each round!
