Tips

  1. This is not a full overhead press. This variation allows for more weight to be added.
  2. Start just above the weak point of the movement so you can use a lot of weight while still having enough of a range of motion to stimulate the pressing muscles.
  3. Plant your feet relatively wide and drive into the ground when pressing weight up.
  4. Keep a natural arch in your lower back. Using too much and bad form can really cause bad back pain.

Variations

  1. Full overhead seated press.
  2. Stand up and perform an overhead press.
  3. Use dumbbells instead of a barbell.

Types

  • Force Type: Push
  • Mechanics Type: Compound
