When pressing anything overhead it is imperative to maintain core tightness. While pressing overhead may seem and sound super basic, it is all but that. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered.
In the video pertaining to this, Alex shows us with a kettlebell the proper form and technique to pressing overhead. He shows with a kettlebell but this can be used as a tool to help with any presses including ones done with dumbbells or barbells.
Breathing is also a huge factor to maintaing tightness through the body and press. This will help in taking pressure off of the spine and keep you from rounding your spine during the press. Inhale and hold while exhaling at top of the press will keep that body tight and safe.
Now that we have discussed it. Please refer to the video in our Conway ISI facebook page for a visual on pressing!
