“I haven’t done push press in forever”
True story. I hear things like this often. Let me explain why I’m not really concerned.
When you do a push press, you are essentially putting weight overhead. You do the same thing with presses, push jerks, split jerks, thrusters, wall balls, Curtis P’s and handstand pushups. I’m 99% sure you’ll be doing at least one of those every week you’re in. So even if you haven’t done the push press, you’re still gaining strength/endurance for putting weight overhead.
You can say the same thing about squats. Haven’t done front squats in a while? You’ve probably done back squats, overhead squats, goblet squats, squat cleans, hang squat cleans, squat snatches, hang squat snatches, Curtis P’s, wall balls, med ball cleans, thrusters, clusters or pistols. The point is, you’re probably going to be getting your hips below parallel at least once a week (but probably more).
So there’s no need to fret about missing a single exercise. If you come consistently (at least 3x/week), chances are you will hit the MOVEMENT during those days.
*side note – ever notice how we rarely do bench press, but you keep getting stronger at them? Weird, eh?
