Bench press in a wod?!

Most likely going to have to run this in waves but floor press is also an option (especially for those of you still new to the movement). Couple of other points on this one:  The load should be challenging, but not able to be completed in one or even two sets. It should take at least a minute to complete. Keep the shoulders packed and engage the lats. Do not let the hips rise up off the bench.  For the KTEs, make sure the knees touch the actual elbows or forearms (not the triceps). Shoulder presses need to be strict with no hip or knee involvement. Break up the swings to save your hands and to finish the last sets strong.
