The Push Press and the Jerk are both great exercises!!! The Push Press is an exercise that focuses on the shoulders but, also engages your core, legs and back. Knees slightly bent, elbows under bar, core engaged, scaps engaged, you then simply “Dip and Drive” pressing the weight overhead. It is important when doing the push press and the jerk that you “shoot your head through the window” ie you want your head coming forward when finishing the lift, to ensure that the bar is in proper alignment with your area of base which is the distance from one side of your foot to the other. When doing the Jerk you want to really explode with every rep, slightly dip, majority of the weight will be on your heels, the DIP and DRIVE! Weight transfer will occur especially if you are firing those hips forward in which you will leave the ground slightly and will land slightly wider than your starting stance. Adjust feet back to starting stance and repeat. The Jerk and Push Press are both great exercises however, the Jerk is more explosive! Create a great day!!!! -Coach T
