Band Exercise Snapshot: Band Overhead Press
By Dan Kleckner
Band Overhead Press Description
This version of the overhead press is a lot more friendly on the shoulder joint than weighted overhead presses. So if you have shoulder stiffness this may be a better option for you. It is also great for working on shoulder stability.
Band Overhead Press Steps
1. Start with the band under the arches of the feet and holding the band in the palm of the hands.
2. Keeping the core and the glutes tight raise the band overhead.
3. Lock the elbows out all the way at he top then slowly lower the band back to the chest.
4. Repeat for 8-12 reps. Make sure to keep a tall chest and good posture throughout.
