Double Offset Overhead Press

Description

This one sounds complicated but it's quite simple in practice. There are essentially 2 forms of offset loading involved; one is the actual load being heavier on one side, and the second is the use of a different training apparatus in each hand. While one arm is essentially performing a relatively standard overload movement in the form of a heavy dumbbell press, the other arm is performing a lighter, yet highly unstable pressing variation in the form of a bottoms-up press. The goal is to transfer the same crisp and proper mechanics produced from the bottoms-up technique to the arm that's simultaneously pressing the heavier dumbbell on the opposite side. Once mastered, the movement should appear seamless and synchronized as if you were using the same tools and loads on each side with no visible differences in body position and mechanics. This requires an incredibly high degree of neuromuscular coordination, body awareness, sensory integrated movement, and mental engagement. – Joel Seedman
