Tip: Full-Kneeling Dumbbell Overhead Press

This accessory lift teaches you to use proper form before moving to the standing barbell press.

This lift demands more mobility and strength from your T-spine to press overhead into the proper position. Use it to work your way up to do doing a proper standing overhead press.

As you press, squeeze your glutes and core to maintain your pelvic position. If you lose your pelvic position, the stress will transfer to your lower back.

Finish the lift with both dumbbells directly overhead while maintaining a straight line from the dumbbell to the ground.
