Overhead Pressing With An Unstable Load

In the videos below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy performing some variations of the overhead press (bilateral overhead press and single arm overhead press) using The Yoak Bar with weights.  The design of The Yoak Bar with weights is such at the load is inherently unstable as it moves and therefore places greater demand on the individual to control the load as it is pushed, pulled or held in place.  This means that often sub maximal loads are used and the exercise is not performed to failure to the need to minimise risk of injury.
