Gym in Waterford



Set up by kneeling on the same side the pressing arm. The opposite leg should be wider than hip width to provide a stable base.

“Stack” the working shoulder by keeping the elbow from drifting past the rib cage. This can force the shoulder forward and can be uncomfortable.

Press overhead while simultaneously moving into the press. At the end of the overhead movement your arm, spine and back knee should be aligned.

The shoulder blade should move upwards and from close to the spine to towards the shoulder joint.

Try this exercise the next time you’re in the gym and let us know how you get on
