Big Bang Exercises – Push Press

In #BigBangExercises by Polina

Hey Foxes! I’m starting a new series of posts where I share some advanced exercises that I use with my clients.

Here I share my favourite upper body drill.

We foxes don’t do enough upper body weight lifting and if we want strong, toned arms and well defined shoulders, this is something we need to change.

The push press is my exercise of choice for my personal training clients. Simply unrack the bar, dip your knees and use leg drive and your arms to push the bar off your shoulders. Your legs provide the initial kick to get the bar off your shoulders and you use your arms to lock out overhead.

Start off with just the bar! This is an exercise that doesn’t need weight to be effective.

If the bar is too heavy, you can do the same exercise with a pair of light dumbbells
