Shoulder Pressing 101

In this video we demonstrate and discuss how to use optimal shoulder mechanics for the overhead press, how it differs from the jerk and push press and how it relates much closer to the bench press. Maintaining control of the scapulae and humerus under load is one of the best ways to train the shoulder stabilisers functionally, as well as creating and keeping tension through the major muscles involved in the movement, it will target a greater amount of muscle fibres leading to much better hypertrophic and strength gains.
