Kettlebell 1-Arm Strict Press

Overhead pressing is sorely underrated and oftentimes placed below horizontal pressing like floor presses, and pushups. This isn’t the case. The ability to press things overhead, when you think about it, is quite a bit more functional than horizontal pressing in every day life.

Don’t minimize the overhead strict press. It builds strength in the shoulders, triceps, upper chest, and trunk. It is a very humbling exercise and being weak in it will hinder progress with many other kettlebell lifts.
