Bottom Up KB Press

The bottom up KB press is fast becoming one of my favourite shoulder exercises for training balance, stability and strength through the wrist/hand, elbow and shoulder girdle in a vertical pressing plane.  It requires the individual to work much harder to balance the KB when pressing overhead.  Whilst you will find that your overhead pressing weight may be less than a traditional strict KB press or push press movement, it does place an increased demand through the the entire upper limb.  Try adding this to your upper body workout session next time you are in the gym.  Note:  Beware of dropping the KB on your head or others nearby.
