Coaching Points 

  • Supinated grip: Position both hands on the bar with a supinated grip, meaning your palms are facing upward. Maintain a firm and secure grip throughout the exercise to ensure stability and control.
  • Grip width: Place your hands on the bar approximately 2-3 inches narrower than your maximum strength position. This narrower grip challenges the muscles in a different way and can promote greater activation of the biceps, forearms, and upper back muscles.
  • Staggered stance: Assume a staggered stance with one foot slightly in front of the other. This provides a stable base and helps distribute the load evenly across your body. Choose a stance that feels comfortable and allows for proper alignment during the exercise.
  • Controlled descent: Lower the bar quickly but with control, maintaining proper form and alignment. Avoid letting the bar drop or bouncing it off your chest. Control the weight throughout the entire range of motion to engage the muscles effectively and reduce the risk of injury.
  • Intent to move the bar quickly: Focus on pressing the bar with the intent to move it as fast as possible. Generate explosive power from your upper body and emphasize speed during the pressing phase of the exercise. This helps develop strength, power, and muscular coordination.
