8. GROOVING A BETTER OVERHEAD POSITION
“Groove a better overhead position with this simple but effective drill. Using the fixed length of the gymnastics rings we pull our shoulders into more flexion as we go through our press movement, teaching our body to accept the range in a way that carries over directly to the barbell.
Key cues: keep chin tucked and ribs down, with shoulders relaxed. Let the rings pull you into end range. Step further and harder as the set progresses to add more ground reaction and stimulate more reactive contractions that will make the new range stick.”
