Pressing in many variations are a fun part of CrossFit. We like the push up, the bench press, you name it we press it. One of our favorite presses is the Sotts Press It is a great exercise to test an athletes strength in the receiving position of the snatch. Olympic style weightlifters use it to effectively develop balance and flexibility as well as confidence with overhead stability. Though usually done with a barbell the kettlebell version is no less challenging or rewarding.
