Today I wanted to share a quick breakdown of how we progress to pressing overhead.
A lot of our overhead athletes have difficulty owning the overhead position so we use a variety of methods to help get them there. We start by reducing the amount of motor control that they need to use by putting them in a tall kneeling position. This allows them to focus on what the torso is doing. We also will use the landmine apparatus before they go straight overhead. This allows them to continue to get strong before they’re truly able to own the overhead position.
