Points to remember:

Core tight throughout the movement.  Also, lock the legs out and do not release them until your set is done.

Keep the elbows slightly in front of the bar.  A good way to do this is have your grip just barely outside of shoulder width.  When you grab the bar, try to push your biceps into your chest Keep the bar path in a straight line.

Don’t allow the bar to go out wide around your face.  Use the “double-chin” method to move your head out of the way.

At the top of the movement, don’t exagerate your position, meaning, don’t overly arch your back.  Keep your core tight.  Shrug up the shoulder, not just the traps.


Press 3RM for 1 rep On The Minute for 10 minutes….



(1 rep on the minute, add a rep each minute.  Continue until you cannot complete all the reps within the minute)
