Push Press 8-5-5-3-3-3-3

Work up to a strong effort 3 rep push press increasing with each set.   With this rep scheme you should start very light and make small increases.  Be sure to press the bar overhead and not catch it with bent knees.  When the weight gets heavier pay special attention to catching the bar with “soft” knees and even practice rebounding into your next rep.
