MOVEMENT TIP: The Push Press

We start the movement with a small downwards dip, then drive out of our heels to extend the hips fully. If it is explosive enough, this hip extension (i.e. straightening out of the hips and knees) transfers some momentum to the barbell, making it easier to press the barbell overhead. You can even test it out without using your hands and see how the barbell bounces up a little. It is important to remember not to press upwards with your arms too early – you want to wait until the hips fully extend in order to ‘catch’ that extra momentum generated by the hips before you use the arms to push upwards.[/vc_column_text][us_separator show_line=”1″ line_width=”default”][vc_column_text]
