Develop Shoulder Strength: 6/6/18

Overhead pressing is a movement we use frequently in every day life. There are three basic overhead lifts: the strict press, push press, and push jerk. As an athlete goes from the shoulder press, to push press, to push jerk, the importance of core to extremity muscle recruitment increases.

The Push Press is used to help develop the strength of the shoulder. It can be used to push past a sticking point or develop power for the Clean & Jerk . The ability to drive from the legs and through the torso to the arms is important for athletic performance.
