Stance for overhead presses

Hey everyone!!

I apologize if this has been asked before, I'm studying for my level 1 cert and I want to clarify the proper stance for the overhead movements (press, push press, push jerk) in one section of the manual it said hip width and one section it said shoulder width. Pics to follow.

Thanks!!

Couldn't figure out how to post 2 pics so here's the other one




-- I realize it's different per person in the sense guys have wider shoulders and women have wider hips I just want to get the "correct answer" if it appears on the test

Re: Stance for overhead presses

The answer would be "Hip width" if they asked the question.

The exam is not hard if you know the martial and have basic test taking skills. They are not try to trick you. They simply want to insure you know the study martial.

The people who get in trouble on the exam typically have done well in their Affiliate: learning skills, following a nutritional plan the affiliate teaches, being fast at met-cons and getting stronger.

Basically being successful as an athlete. They assume because they are one of the best in the gym they must know what they are doing. This doesn't translate to a good test score.

Just the fact you caught this issue reflects you are paying enough attention to the study martial to do fine.

Re: Stance for overhead presses

It will be covered very well in the lectures too. Take notes and you will do fine.
