Re: Push jerk/press back pain

there's a really good video in the crossfit journal by adrian bozman that helps explains the mechanics in the push press.... including the overarching...

it comes down from not pushing the bar directly overhead. Rather you push the bar forwards... as a result you try to compensate, and the only way you compensate is to arch your back....

my trainer corrected this major fault of mine the other day... he said that it's safer to dump the bar rather than arch your back...

hope this helps!!!
