Hopper Deck Day

Like the previous Hopper Deck sessions we will be selecting a workout from the “Hopper Deck”. Everyone has to agree to the workout, otherwise it is 10 Burpees to draw another card.

If the next class wants to do the same workout as the previous one there is a 10 burpee buy in. Otherwise they can take a chance and draw their own card.

Back to Basics

PRESS
SETUP:
• Stance = hip width
• Hands just outside the shoulders

• Tight midsection
• Closed grip, with thumbs around the bar
EXECUTION:
• The cue for the action is “Press”
• Drive through heels; keep the whole body rigid; tight belly
• Bar travels straight up to locked out, with active shoulders, directly overhead
