I know, doing the push press can be a little scary, particularly when you're fresh off of plenty of other hard training days. But if you can keep your back straight, your abs engaged, and your shoulders wide, you've got a great base to press from. That's all you need! When you bring the weight back down to your shoulders, bend your knees to cushion the impact.

You have a lot of conditioning work to do after your nine heavy presses. If you're good at jumping rope, then 200 reps shouldn't be too difficult. If you struggle, well, it may take you a little longer. I encourage everyone to choose a style that's most difficult. So, if you can perform double-unders or want to do 100 reps on each leg, then do them!
