The best demo of the various overhead positions....in only 20 sec!
"The overhead press is an important component of upper-body training for several sports, and it is one of the oldest weight-room exercises. It has been used for years as a primary exercise for shoulder strength and rehabilitation because of its balance of anterior/posterior muscle involvement. In contrast to the bench press, which is an inherently anterior-dominant movement, the press locks the weight out overhead to recruit all the musculature on both the front and back of the shoulder." - Lon Kilgore (CFJ issue 67 March 2008)
- Shoulder Press: 1-1-1-1-1
- Push Press: 3-3-3-3-3
- Push Jerk: 5-5-5-5-5
