Sotts Press

  • HOW: Begin by bending your knees and squatting all of the way down keeping your feet flat (imagine a baseball catcher’s position). Have a barbell resting on your shoulders  with a wide grip.  While holding that squat position, press the bar up and back down. 
 
  • FEEL: You should feel the muscles in your lower body working as you are in the deep squat.  You should also feel the muscles in your shoulder working as you press the bar up. 
 
  • COMPENSATION:  Make sure to be active in your squat, push through the ground with your feet, don’t just hang there. Keep your chest up and your feet flat on the ground. Press the bar straight overhead, not behind you or in front of your.
