90% of OCR is pulling. If you don’t work the “push” muscles you’re creating imbalance that could lead to injury.
Most running and triathlon strength plans do not include pressing movements which can also lead to muscular imbalances and injury
An overhead press, especially when executed one arm at a time builds strength throughout the shoulder complex and core.
Be sure as you go through this moment that you do not over arch your low back at any point, especially as you are pressing overhead. To help prevent this 1)be aware if your arching your back excessively, perhaps do the movement with your side facing a mirror, 2)every time you press weight overhead “squeeze” the glute of the kneeling leg (the one that’s on the ground)
We recommend 3-4 sets of 8-12 repetitions
