CROSSFIT FUNDAMENTALS #4: The Shoulder Press

Build your biceps, lats and pectoral muscles with this Fundamental CrossFit move.

The Shoulder Press must be mastered if you are going to make the most of your training sessions.

Although it is an upper body move, you still need to be aware of the placement of your lower body in order to maximise the effectiveness of this move.

Here’s a demonstration from CrossFit Seminar Staff member Julie Foucher

Keep these positioning tips in mind when performing an Overhead Squat:

  1. Hip-width stance
  2. Hands just outside shoulders
  3. Elbows slightly in front of bar
  4. Full grip on the bar
  5. Torso and legs static
  6. Heels down
  7. Shoulders push up into the bar
  8. Complete at full arm extension

As the video shows, the position of your body is very important when completing this move. Keep thinking about where your feet are, how your hands are placed on the bar and about the positioning of your elbows.

While full arm extension is recommended, controlled, careful moves will prevent you from injuring your elbows or shoulders while you are getting started.

You’ll be amazed at how quickly you build your strength by using the Shoulder Press in your CrossFit training.
