I could not believe the difference in the videos!
This video just started out as a simple and effective drill I like to use, I wanted to share with my gym members to also improve their overhead position.
Then during the editing process I needed to go back and pull some of my old lifts to compare for contrast.
The differences was simply astonishing!
Now, there have been many hours of practice, drilling, and maybe a few kicks and screams going into the process.
As you can tell the end result is very visible.
It’s a simple drill, we’re just strict pressing (or military pressing) from the receiving position of our jerk.
I had a terrible problem of not maintaining midline stabilization during my earlier lifts in which allowed my chest to travel forward, pushing the barbell out in front of me and having to finish the lift pulling the barbell back overhead.
It happen in almost every lift I did.
Once I started implementing this drill, it drasticly improved and fixed my overhead position. Since the drill is not happening at lightning speed, it allows you to visibly see any imbalances occurring in the lift.
I do this drill every day before moving weight overhead!
