Y Overhead Press

Jun 2, 2020 | Exercises

The Stay at Home order is still in effect across America. We’ve been getting by with a home gym as well as getting outside for physical activity. I hope you are all hanging in there as well. Today I’m going to share a version of an Overhead Press that you may not have tried. If you have access to dumbbells, you can do this one at home!

Shoulder Workout

The Y Overhead Press is a variation of a press where it ends with your upper body forming a Y—hence the name. This pressing movement stimulates you in a way that a traditional overhead press does not. These aren’t huge delt builders but are great for overall shoulder stability which will help with all of your overhead press movements! 

Looking to build your rear delts? You’ve got to try this face pull exercise!

Alright, let’s get on with the movement: 

As you can see in the above video, instead of pressing directly up, you press your arms out to 45 degrees. It puts your arms in a weaker position, making them work to not break form. Start light and try 15 reps and increase weight from there.
