Athletic Weight Training – Rear Step Deadlift to Forward Step Overhead Press
Deadlifting/Hip hinging and Overhead Pressing are two fundamental weight lifting patterns. Combine the two for an athletic approach to building your body #SpineStrong #IntrinsicStrength
This exercise is challenging, especially on my non dominant side.
Step 1. Take a rear step while simultaneously hip hingeing and reaching the weight towards the ground. Focus on using the non stepping leg to decelerate the body before crashing into the ground.
(Angelo’s Advice) Focus on controlling and slowing down the body with your stance leg and maintaining a strong posture.
Step 2 – Press the foot of the stance leg into the ground to propel the body up forward into a forward step overhead press. Focus on Accelerating the body.
(Angelo’s Advice) Focus on loading the hip of the non stepping leg to propel and engage the entire body through the forward stepping motion while maintaining a strong posture.
