Neutral Grip Dumbbell Strict Press:
20 Second Hold at the top Straight into Max Set of dumbbell strict press
Use 50% of your 1RM Barbell Strict Press (each dummbell should be 25% of your 1RM)

As you see the hold makes the press very tough. The purpose here is to show you how challenging it is to keep a tight midline, neutral spine,
and powerful pressing position but to reward you for being able to do so.
