Boost Your Leg Work (W II)

2 Overhead Press

Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart or slightly narrower and grab the bar with a slightly wider-than-shoulder-width grip. To get the bar into position, you can either explosively heave it up off the floor and up to your shoulders, or set the bar at shoulder level on the supports of a power rack. Squeeze your shoulder blades together, and push your chest out. Begin pressing the bar overhead, retracting your head as the bar rises to keep it out of the way. When the bar passes your head, press it up and slightly backward so that it ends up in line with the back of your head.
