GO Green Fit: Military Press


Crossfit has never been for the faint of heart, and this is one intense workout that will put a ton of burn into your arms. Our trainer is doing a standard military press with a slight variation; he is lifting the bar and lowering it behind his head. This won’t be any more beneficial¬†than doing it in front of you like normal. However, it will take some extra concentration and focus to get the lift right. You might also feel a slight pull in your back. The trainer then “rests” with a 20-second l-sit between each set. L-sits will work your core and also your triceps. If you really want to hate/love the next day, lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90 degree angle and lift back up while keeping your legs straight.

Do you prefer to do a rear military press? Have you gotten any amazing results on your core from L-sits? Let us know in the comments below or by tweeting us @underwearexpert.
