Bottoms Up Press on Bodybuilding.com & New Workout Wednesday!

What’s pop’n, ninjas? I love practicing all types of presses and pushing exercises, from handstand push-ups to dips and even kettlebell military presses. My latest obsession has been with a relatively esoteric lift known as the Kettlebell Bottoms Up Press. This lift may look more like a circus trick than a legitimate exercise, but don’t be fooled because there are lots of benefits to adding it to your routine.

The Bottoms up press builds strength in your shoulders, forearms and even trains your grip. This press can help you improve your overhead pressing technique and even rehab old shoulder injuries, too. Click the link below to check out my latest piece for Bodybuilding.com:
