Lifts series: Overhead press

leave a comment »

Lift 4

Overhead press is a great movement to train upper body. It’s one of my weakest lifts but I like doing it.

At the start make sure the bar is resting right above your forearms. Do not let the wrists bend down too much. It’s all about minimizing the lever arm and supporting the weight with as much muscle as possible. Keep this position as you push the bar up. Keep your legs, glutes, and core tight.

Push your face forward and under the bar as the bar travels pass your chin. Push the bar all the way up, then slowly lower it back to the starting position.

Other lifts: squat, reverse grip bench, barbell row
