The Stay at Home order is still in effect across America. We’ve been getting by with the home gym and getting outside for physical activity. I hope you are all hanging in there as well. Today I’m going to share a version of an Overhead Press that you may not have tried. If you have access to dumbbells, you can do this one at home!

The Y Overhead Press is a variation of an overhead press where it ends with your upper body forming a Y—hence the name. The Y Overhead Press stimulates you in a way that a traditional overhead press does not. These aren’t huge delt builders but are great for overall shoulder stability which will help with all of your overhead press movements! 

Alright, let’s get on with the movement: 

As you can see in the above video, instead of pressing directly up, you press your arms out to 45 degrees. It puts your arms in a weaker position, making them work to not break form. Start light and try 15 reps and increase weight from there.

Give it a try and let us know what you think! If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.
