⭕️YOUR CHIN & OVERHEAD PRESSING⭕️
🔥 Do you ever pay attention to the way you over head press?
Are you making sure you’re not cheating and actually treating it as an incline bench press just to show off your big lifts?
⭕️ I mean, I get it. I get it, but at the end of the day, if we want our shoulders to grow we should try our best to isolate them.
To maintain a proper vertical bar path (at least as much as possible), letting your shoulders do most of the work and holding your lower back within a range of neutral extension, we need to “move under the bar” while performing the exercise.
At the start, the bar will sit close to your clavicles with our elbows pointing downwards. Our chin will be on top of the bar, and we’ll need to pull it back to let the bar go up. –
The reason why we need to pull our chin back is because otherwise the bar wouldn’t be able to travel upwards. We need to create the space for it to go up, then get back under it.
✅At this point, we’ll simply need “to get under the bar” to mimick the starting position so that we stay perpendiculr to the ground, allowing most of the work to be done by our shoulders
