Overhead Press Variations for Powerful Shoulders

In this short video I demonstrate two great overhead exercises: the Push Press and the Split Push Jerk. These are explosive movements which train your fast twitch muscle fibers and train you to be more powerful, which is especially important for most athletes. Although the push press and push jerk do require significant upper body involvement, I consider them to be full body compound exercises. This is because you must drive with your hips and legs as well as your arms and shoulders in a coordinated manner in order to complete the movement.

If you haven't already, try out these exercises in your program and let me know if you have any questions.
