(Specialty warm-up: 3L, 3R Mace shovel + press (1 + 1 = 1), 20 mace front pendulum)

5 rounds of:

5L Mace shovel + press (1 shovel + 1 press = 1)

5R Mace shovel + press (1 shovel + 1 press = 1)

20 Mace front pendulum (switch top-to-bottom hand evenly)

10 Push-up

:20 sec. rest/ assessment (weight/ width/ variation)

Prioritize square shoulders and a hard, straight top arm to initiate shovel, and attend to the stops and starts; Shovel stops overhead with both arms above eyeline and straight, then press begins. Press ends, and then mace descends. Aggressive and accurate transitions help ensure heavy-enough-to-be-useful weights. Narrow and widen hands as an effective means of scaling!
