Bench Sesh #1

Jenna Buckle | 09/11/2019 | 3

Athletes Mike, Ana, and Ben stringing together toes to bar.

Welcome to the first bench press day of our new cycle!

Over the next six weeks, you’ll be seeing a lot more of the bench press. This lift targets our chest, shoulders, and triceps, and it’s an excellent way to train our pushing/pressing strength — the theme of this cycle. Today’s rep scheme is on the higher end, so expect to work at a light to moderate weight. (Don’t worry… we’ll have chances to get heavier on the bench in the coming weeks!)

After that, we’ll hit a 15-minute couplet of wall balls and toes to bar. We want you moving quickly through each round. Do your best to minimize transition times, and strive to complete each movement in two sets or less, if not unbroken!


Bench Press 8-8-8-8


10 wall balls (20/14)
10 toes to bar

    STR: 85#
    WOD: 8+13 @ TTB & 20WB (not really Rx since some of the throws were not rx material). These TTB broke down to singles quickly
