Strength and Conditioning Coach Nathane Jackson asks the question, “Should you or should you not overhead press?” Nathane outlines a quick assessment so you can easily answer this question for yourself.
Bring your back against a wall, feet 6–8 inches from the wall. Keep your shoulders and back of head also against the wall. Bring your arms up, exhaling, and touch the wall with your thumbs. Make sure your back stays flat against the wall. If you can maintain this position you should be okay to overhead press. If not, we recommend following along with videos to come. Nathane will get you cleaned up and ready to do this exercise and more in no time.
