When it comes to overhead pressing and progressing your lift, I find that adding in some overhead stability challenged lifts can be a great adjunct to develop ones grip and shoulder stability and strength which ultimately can assist in improving ones overhead lift. In the videos below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy providing some examples of how one might look to challenge ones stability through overhead pressing with the use of a kettlebell or barbell. Make sure you reduce your training loads when performing these lifts due to the increased movement of the load.
Next time you look to review your training program, make sure you consider adding in some stability based challenged lifts.
