Are you ready for the Overhead Press?
Did you know that pressing overhead isn’t appropriate for all bodies all of the time??
Alignment and recruitment mobility and stability of the shoulder joint JUST as important, if not MORE important than how “strong” you are.
You may be able to get the bell pressed up overhead, BUT can you do it using the best form and protect your shoulders from pain later?
If you press overhead and you don’t have the mobility to prevent flaring of the ribs or tilting of the pelvis, you can end up developing injuries or core and pelvic floor issues.
Pressing overhead is NOT a requirement for strength and fitness (unless you are doing an RKC or SFG kettlebell cert), so don’t feel like you’re weak or failing.
Kettlebells are AMAZING at highlighting the areas of our bodies that need a little extra attention and that’a a GOOD THING!
Check out my video below and then video yourself or press in front of a mirror and evaluate if YOU’RE ready to press overhead!
