Guide for Push Press

  • Grab the bar and have a slightly wider grip than your shoulder width
  • The feet should point slightly outwards
  • Put the weight on the middle part of the foot or slightly against the heel
  • Your upper body should be upright at all times
  • When bending the leg, it should be short but sufficient to provide force to the explosive drive up 
  • Pull your head back
  • Shoulders down, do not pull them up towards your ears
  • Pull the shoulder blades together throughout the exercise
  • This is a good exercise if you want to take heavier weights than you do when performing the military press. 
  • Hold the weight on the way down, especially if you put on more weight than you do in the Military Press
