CrossFit WOD Tips: 2/20/11

The three ways to move weight from our shoulders to above our heads are the:

  • Shoulder Press
  • Push Press
  • Push Jerk

This is old news for most experienced CrossFitters, but for those who are not as familiar with those movements, it can be hard to conceptualize the difference in your mind. CrossFit Headquarters often times puts together instructional videos on how to perform movements properly, and this is certainly one of them.

Watch how “Original Firebreather” Greg Amundson (who also runs CrossFit Amundson with his wife) shows the difference between the three exercises listed above. As you move to the right of the video, the movements become less based on purely strength, and more about producing a powerful and efficient force to get that weight up and locked out over your head.

If you have any questions on this video or these movements, feel free to leave them in the Comments for this post!
