Full Extension at the Top
In the picture above, Charles is doing a beautiful job of fully extending the shoulders in the lockout position of a push press.
This position is the correct finishing position for the shoulder press, push press, and push jerk.
It’s critical to athletic development, to attaining true shoulder flexibility, and to being able to press and hold large loads overhead. It’s also the position one needs to get into in order to hold a proper handstand.
Nice work, Charles!
