Personal Trainer Dublin – Explosive Shoulder Push Press

This is an explosive fat burning, muscle building exercise. Not only is it working the shoulders but it incorporates your legs(quads, hamstrings, gleuts), arms(triceps) and abs.

This exercise will definitely get your heart pumping and get you into optimum fat burning mode. As well as building muscle at the same time.. That’s what we all want right? 😉

Remember it’s all about athletic explosive movements 😉 the more big muscle groups we incorporate into one movement the harder the body has to work and therefore the more bodyfat you will burn!!! 😉

How to do the exercise –

As always the correct technique is pivotal in getting the utmost benefit from this and any exercise!

So get your arse and chest out keeping the natural curve in your spine, this will keep any pressure off of your lower back and prevent injury 😉

Unrack the bar keeping your bum and chest out and also keeping the knees bent, the bend in the knees will give you the explosive power you will need to get the bar up over your head.

Make sure to lock the bar out once you’ve pressed it over your head! 😉 bring the bar slowly back down to the chest taking the eccentric movement or the negetive, this will ensure optimum tearing of the muscle = muscle growth!!!

Remember to keep the elbows tucked, chest out, arse out an knees bent!..believe me you will feel this in your abs, legs, arms and shoulders!

Repeat five times with weighted or bodyweight chins on the roman chair or maybe some weighted or bodyweight inverted rows, doing this means you are hitting a lot of big muscles at the same time! 🙂

Reps – 8-10

Inverted row or chins
