Vertical Press

Amrik getting ready to press

When getting ready to push press or jerk we want to keep two things in mind. One... make sure the bar is resting on the muscles of the shoulder and not supported by the arms. Two...keep your elbows in front of the bar while getting your forearms as close to vertical as you can.
