Push Press The Odds

Iron Grip CrossFit – CrossFit

While the push press is really just an auxillary exercise for traditional weightlifters to assist in developing the jerk, in CrossFit we also use it because at light to moderate weights, the push press is inherently faster than the jerk, which means more power output. So for us the push press is yet another tool in the box to help us achieve the greatest level of fitness we can by increasing our potential work capacity… And it helps with the jerk too.
