GTS April Challenge Tabata-A-Day Day 27

Day 27 of the GTS Tabata-A-Day Challenge 

Just a few days left in the challenge, hope you don't have too many left to catch up on!

Today's exercise is a Clean and quick Horizontal Press.  Seems strange since you're in a standing position, but this is a great exercise for the shoulders, erector muscles, and core.

Clean and Horizontal Press

  • Clean or Curl the weight up.
  • Perform a quick press out and in, as if you're performing a double punch.
  • As always keep your core and legs tight.
  • Males should start with 45 lb bar and work your way up in weight.
  • Females should start with a 20lb bar and work your way up in weight.
