Re: Press form check

Make sure to get your head through at the top. Should be able to see your ears in front of your arms when viewed from the side.

Re: Press form check

^that. It might help to think about getting your head through sooner, like as soon as the bar clears the top of your head shove your head forward.

Re: Press form check

For a traditional press are your hands to far apart resulting in your elbows starting to the side and behind you instead of creating a shelf with the lats supporting? Cant' really tell from the angle of this video.
