In the 12 days leading up to Christmas I have been giving a new press variation each day. Check out a couple of the variations that have been feature.
On the 2nd day of #PRESSmas I give to you….2 Half-kneeling Bottoms-Up KB Presses. Long name I know. The half kneeling position is one that I use as I begin to progress an exercise to standing. It helps eliminate some links of the chain to help maintain proper posture. This position makes it really hard to extend through the lumbar spine as you press overhead. Then you add in a Bottoms-Up press for some increased shoulder stability challenge. Start light on these as it can be difficult to control the Bottoms Up KB. Grip the handle of the KB as hard as you can to create greater recruitment of muscles up the chain.
