Superset 3, Move 2
Move 2: Standing Overhead Press
“The standing overhead press is one of the more underrated exercises not only for producing strength and size but also for improving mobility, stability, and postural alignment,” Seedman explains. Plus, he adds, it recruits more muscle mass than any upper body exercise as it activates the musculature around your shoulders, traps, upper back, low back, triceps, upper chest, and core—arms of steel in the making.
How to: With a barbell on the floor in front of you, start at the bottom of a deadlift with an overhand grip. Explode up to standing, driving into your heels and squeezing your glutes to avoid hyperextending your knees. Flip the barbell up to shoulder height. Keep your elbows up high and your upper arm parallel to the ground. Slightly bend your knees and drop down while keeping your torso upright and avoiding leaning forward. Explosively extend your knees and hips as you drive the barbell overhead and stand up tall. Slowly lower the barbell back to your shoulders before repeating.
