20 Push Press 95/65
1) Feet placement
- your feet should be placed right underneath your hips also known as a good vertical jumping position.
- Taller athletes might have a slightly wider feet placement.
- You can use the hook grip. The hook grip is wrapping your thumbs around the bar and then your fingers around your thumb.
- This helps the bar stay firmly in your grip rather going the stupid way and letting the bar slip from your hands
- Yes, it is uncomfortable but deal with it.
3) Get torso as vertical as possible/upright back angle
- This minimizes the torque on your hip and spinal joints.
- Reduces fatigue on the spinal erectors.
- allows greater hip extension/better acceleration(this is very important for the lifts).
- minimizes demand for balance
- Encourages bar to stay closer to the body.
- Toes should be forward or slightly open, so your knees can be slightly flared out.
- You should be looking straight ahead. Looking down will just cause your weight to come forward and will round out your back. This is not what you want!
- Shoot for vertical arms with your shoulders slightly over the bar.
7) Bar Placement
- Bar should be placed over mid foot or as right up against your shins. You should not see your shoe laces.
