7 Dynamite Exercises to Build Pressing Strength for Crossfitters

Pressing strength is vital if you want to improve your lifting, handstand push ups and many other exercises within Crossfit.

Push Press

The Push Press isn’t just another shoulder exercise, it’s a move that builds strength and power throughout the entire body and core. If you want strong, healthy shoulders you should be working the press hard at least once a week. That alone will make a huge difference to your performances.

The Push Press enhances shoulder strength and muscular development. Unlike many other overhead upper body exercises, the Push Press also utilises the legs. Therefore, heavier weights can be lifted in comparison to other overhead shoulder exercises that disregard the involvement of the lower body. It also:

  • Improves your ability to generate and control force
  • Strengthens your core, shoulder, arms, back and legs
  • Taxes your entire body
