Start/Finish

Midpoint

Starting Position: Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Bend your knees slightly, and keep your back straight, not arched. Hold the barbell with a grip just a bit broader than shoulder width apart, right above your collarbone.

The Exercise: Press the weight up until your arms are fully extended over your head. Pause for a count of one, and then lower the weight slowly to the starting position. Pause at the bottom for, you guessed it, another count of one. Do not arch your back as you press the weight overhead on this exercise. That can put undue stress on your lower back.

Don V lean hack as you press the weight up. This can cctuse a hack injury.
