Strict Press for Pregnancy Guidance

Trimester guidance is not set in stone; feel free to fluctuate between options to find what suits you as an athlete today. Each day of pregnancy may be different than the day before and how tomorrow will be. Embrace the opportunity for exploration during this time of growth.

Check out our strict press progression to find additional variations that may suit you today.

Find a level of support that meets your needs today. If you find that you are having trouble staying in a stack position and your ribs thrust upwards, progress to a seated position, or lean back into a wall.
