Jim G. Asks:
Guys, had a question for the next episode…
My upper body (specifically my pressing) is significantly behind my lower body. For example, my best bench right now was a 215 from the last CFFB total test, but I pulled 500 from 2 inches below the knees and am at a 395 squat. Pulling is ok. 1rm chin is +90lbs.
Follow the program as written, but miss Saturdays most weeks. How would you go about getting my pressing stronger without sacrificing too much on the lower body?
A strength and conditioning coach since 2009, Cali has worked with numerous athletes spanning from rugby players to cross country skiers. Almost immediately after finding CrossFit in 2010, she was introduced to a program that better suited her athletic goals. With her existing background in powerlifting and football, she became a natural devotee to CFFB/PowerAthlete and testament to it's effectiveness. In 2012, she left D.C. and headed for the state named after her to be a part of the CrossFit Football Seminar Staff and a Jedi of Power Athlete HQ. Cali currently resides in Seattle where she works full time in law enforcement.
