Breathe through the pullups today. With a heavy weight on your shoulders, you’ll naturally hold your breath to brace your spine. That means the push press will leave you breathing heavy before each round of pull-ups, and that’s our goal. Use the pullups for recovery. Scale to a vertical movement if necessary so that you don’t have to get up and down each set.
“Diane” will pose the same challenge, but won’t allow you the rest. In a HSPU, you’re pressing your bodyweight, which will require similar bracing; the deadlift, obviously, will require a lot of stability. Breathe at the top, not the bottom, and focus on horizontal hip movement. It may help to visualize a kettlebell swing: sit back, push your hips forward, repeat.
