The Yoak Overhead Shoulder Press
In the video below you will see osteopath Heath Williams of Principle Four Osteopathy demonstrating a yoak overhead shoulder press. The yoak bar is a speciality bar that allows for external loads (dumbbells, kettlbells, weight plates) to be attached to the bar. This results in movement of the bar throughout the exercise and therefore the pertubation of the bar challenges ones stability. This is a great exercise for those wishing to train stability and control, however it is recommended to avoid maximal load training due to the added complexity and difficulty of the controlling the moving weights.
