Shoulder Press/Push Press/ Push Jerk WOD

Ok quick question... am I suppsed to use the same weight for the entire WOD? Or do I work up to my max for each excercise?

Re: Shoulder Press/Push Press/ Push Jerk WOD

I think some people do this either way. I usually find that I can handle more weight on the press and even more on the jerk, so I go up in weight.

Dont limit yourself to the same weight, If you can lift more in a certain lift then go up in weight. I for one can definetly jerk more than I can shoulder press, it is just the physics of the lift that makes it so.

I guess I am totally inept- I cannot find that video- I went back to that last time it was posted and clicked on the WOD video, but it was not that one. I looked in the video list- I am totally missing it.
