1. Barbell Military Front Press
How to do it: Grasp a barbell with an overhand grip, hands placed shoulder-width apart or a little wider. You can lift the barbell from a squat rack positioned at chest-height, or clean the bar from the floor to your chest. Without using any momentum, lift the barbell up in front of your face, lock out your arms, then descend down, making sure you go no lower than your chin. Keep your elbows tucked and facing forward, so they don’t bow out to the sides. “Be careful not to jut your head forward when lifting the weight up, and avoid arching your lower back,” Ventriglia says. Tighten your abs when you lift.
Prescription: 3-5 x 6-12 reps with 60-90 sec. restBack to top
