Affiliate Team Qual Week 10

A kettlebell sits in front of a climbing rope with chalk in the background

8 minutes to find 1RM of shoulder press.

Athletes will be given 8 minutes to find 1 rep max of shoulder press. Racks will be used. Athletes can warm up however they would like before the 8 minutes begins with the following exception: they cannot use a loaded barbell for any overhead barbell movements. Empty bar is allowed for warming up, as are dumbbells and any body weight movements. The athlete’s bar must be empty when beginning the WOD. Athletes will begin in front of their racks with hands on the bar. After 3, 2, 1 GO! the athlete may start loading weights. Trainer must validate all scored lifts.  The athlete can get the trainer to validate as many lifts as desired during the 8 minute time cap. The full lift must be completed before time expires for a last second lift to count.  Any athlete that wishes to turn in an official score for this WOD will not be allowed to do any overhead movements with a loaded barbell prior to completing the affiliate WOD for score. This WOD is not just about strength, but about knowing your capabilities, using a log book or PR sheet, and working quickly under pressure.

Range of Motion Standards: If knees or hips move during the lift, then it is a missed rep. Arms must come to full extension at the top of the lift and a portion of the ear must be visible in front of the arm.

Athletes will be briefed on all movements and standards before the workout.

Post official results to the comments here by 7 PM Sunday. This is the only accepted reporting mechanism.

  1. 155# shoulder press with David as trainer.

    160 got about an inch above my forehead, but i couldn’t finish it out. Im happy with my 155, it ties my current PR for press.

  2. 175 with Christina. Matched my PR, which was new as of about a month ago. 180 didn’t happen.

  3. 90# with Hudson and Jeff.

    This is a big weakness for me so I was very happy to get a 5lb PR!

  4. 75 lbs with Hudson and Jeff. This is 5 lbs less than my 1 RM. I am still unsure if I am going to forgive Jordan for taking my 5 lbs away and using it for herself 🙂 In all seriousness great job Jordan!

  5. 70# Hudson and Lil C were my trainers. Sad I didn’t get my 1RM of 75# but apparently it was an overhead squat day for me and not a shoulder press day (:

  6. 155# with Daniel. 10lbs under PR…8 minutes was tricky for me. failed at 165 then 160 as well.

    1. Wow. 15 lb PR! Your shoulders are really loosening up. You’ve come a long way since the days of not being able to OHS.

  7. 75# with Christina

    Definitely a weakness of mine. I’ve got lots of work to do! 🙂
