Functional Press

Our second exercise pattern is press. Generally, we can press in any direction, but overhead is most common.

In addition, when we take the load off the ground and move it above the head, it's called A LIFT.

When we, however, move the load in a horizontal direction, it's called A SHIFT.

In this lesson, we will practice overhead press for Odd Position Strength, a shift for Dead Strength and Agile Strength, and a lift for Strength Endurance.

Both Shifting and Lifting should be stable components of any program design.
