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.
