Daily Gaines Workout Tips: Squat To Press


The squat to press is a great exercise for developing total body power. You want to start with the dumbbells on your shoulders and your toes pointed straight ahead. You initiate this movement by pushing your hips back until your thighs are parallel to the ground. On the way up the athlete needs to drive their hips through and press the weight overhead locking out at the top. Cues I like to use here are sit back on your heels, keep your chest up, and keep your elbows in. I recommend performing 3 sets of 6 repetitions.
