Kettlebell Overhead Press

Performed by Robert Payne

Are you looking for a new way to work the shoulders?  This month, personal trainer, Robert Payne is performing the double overhead kettlebell press. This movement will not only strengthen your shoulders but your entire body as a unit.

To perform this exercise:

1: Double clean a pair of kettlebells to the rack position

2: Maintaining a square stature press both kettlebells keeping your shoulders down, lats engaged, and biceps away from the ears until full lockout.

3: Actively “pull” the kettlebells back down to the rack position. Tips and Safety: Maintain a long spine throughout the movement never rounding or overextending. Keep your gaze slightly above the horizon and drive your feet into the ground rooting yourself and creating a solid foundation. Before each press, grip the ground with your feet to create as much energy as you can throughout your entire body. Maintain vertical forearms throughout the pressing process.
