Push-Press is a basic exercise for activating the core of the body and proper transfer of force from the bottom to the upper extremities. The core of our body is the “body zone”. Push-Press training requires a very strong power belt as well as very good coordination for the transition from push to push.
Method of Execution
- A) Place the bar on your shoulders with your arms open at a width slightly wider than your shoulders.
- B) The elbows are lower and further in front of the bar.
- C) Your legs open approximately the width of the hips with the soles parallel to each other.
- D) Your torso in the form of an arch (lordosis).
- E) Start by bending your knees to about 1/5 of the Squat.
- F) Keep your torso tight and perpendicular to the ground.
- G) Stretch your hips and knees explosively.
- H) Press the bar with your shoulders and hands until the arms are fully extended above your head.
From Shoulder Press to Push Press the movement becomes more and more functional and more suitable for heavier weights. This fact is increasingly based on the power zone. In the Push Press exercise the power belt provides the main impetus for execution.
