🚨STANDING OVERHEAD PRESS ❌WRONG VS ✅RIGHT

The key muscle group working with the barbell standing press is the shoulders. Most of the load is emphasized on the front delta, a little less on the middle one, the rear delta is practically not involved in the movement, but it carries an indirect static load.

✳️Muscle: shoulders
✳️Type : compound
✳️Sets : 4
✳️Reps : 8-12
✳️Rest: 60 sec

Cheating!
In such traumatic exercises in no case should not deviate from the correct technique in favor of a greater working weight or more repetitions. Including additional muscle groups (legs, lower back) into the work, you not only reduce the effectiveness of the bench press while standing, as the shoulders get less load, but you risk serious spinal injury due to strong compression of the intervertebral discs in the lumbar spine.

❌Bending knees
❌not keeping core activated
❌not contesting shoulders
