This is one of my favorite moves for folks with very little time to workout. It can be used as part of your dynamic warm up, with a lighter weight, or as one of your primary total body movements.
Tips for Success:
– Be sure to keep weight on your heels, not the balls of your feet (keep your heels on the ground)
– Squeeze your glutes tight as you stand from the bottom
– Press the weight as high as you can overhead. When done properly your biceps will be parallel to, or slightly behind your ears.
– Keep your chest up!! If you notice at a certain point during the lowering/eccentric phase that your chest starts to dip/lean forward, stop lowering at that point.
