OverheadPress0030
Overhead Press - Two Arm (Narrow Grip): Begin by holding the bar just under the chin with hands shoulder width apart. Press the bar overhead being certain you can still see the bar if you glance up. Bend the elbows to return to the starting position.
OverheadPress0031
Overhead Press - Two Arm (Wide Grip): Begin by holding the bar just under the chin with hands more than shoulder width apart. Press the bar overhead being certain you can still see the bar if you glance up. Bend the elbows to return to the starting position.
OverheadPress0035
Overhead Press - One Arm (Side): Begin by holding the bar in the center with the right hand and placing the bar on the shoulder lengthwise. Extend the elbow and press the bar straight up from the shoulder. Bend the elbow and return to the starting position. Try to keep the bar parallel to the floor as you lift and lower the bar.
NOTE: The one arm, side option is perfect for anyone with shoulder impingement. Feel free to ‘spot’ with the opposite hand if the bar is too heavy for one arm lifting.
OverheadPress0037
Overhead Press (With Rotation): Begin by holding the bar in the center with the right hand and placing the bar on the shoulder lengthwise. Extend the elbow and press the bar straight up from the shoulder. At the same time, rotate the bar to finish with your palm facing front and bar directly above your head. Bend the elbow and return to the starting position. Try to keep the bar parallel to the floor as you lift and lower the bar.
NOTE: The one arm with rotation option allows for a wide range of motion and challenges the stability of the shoulder joint.
OverheadPress0110
Overhead Press (One Arm - Front): Begin by positioning the bar directly overhead and sliding the right hand to the center of the bar. The left hand may move to the far end of the bar and lightly assist. Bend the right elbow and take the bar down and out to chin height, forming a 90˚ angle with the elbow. Straighten the elbow and push the bar back up and over the head.
NOTE: The one arm option, while certainly more challenging, provides a bigger range of motion for the traditional overhead press performed with a straight bar.
ShoulderExtension0115
Shoulder Extension: Grasp the bar underhand and hold behind your back right below your buttocks. Keeping the arms straight, extend from the shoulder joint to lift the bar away from the thighs. Return to starting position.
FrontRaise0041
Front Raise (Regular): Begin by grasping the Body Bar® with an overhand grip about shoulder width apart. With straight arms, lift the bar to about shoulder height. Then, return to the starting position.
FrontRaise0042
Front Raise (Underhand Grip): Begin by grasping the Body Bar® with an underhand grip about shoulder width apart. Hold the bar at belly button height, slightly in front of the body with elbows bent and slightly behind the body. Without extending the elbow joint, lift the bar up to eye level and then return to start position.
