MRC Video of the Week: Improve Overhead Press with Deadhang superset

Having trouble with a well stacked overhead position? Try superset with a dead-hang first.

Holding a long stretch of the muscles preventing the arms from going overhead is a great way to allow room for the muscles that do press overhead to strengthen.

Creating strength in the ranges of motion created by the stretch will help prevent the muscles from tightening up again.

This method of training is also a great way to continue lifting weights to get strong while attending to a joint imbalance that may need some attention before it becomes an injury.
