There are many different ways to accomplish the same goal when it comes to strength.
Let’s say you want to get stronger at pressing. Here’s a partial list of exercises you can do to achieve that goal.
Two or One Hand at a time
Isometrics, Negatives & Partials
Not to mention the tons of different tools you can use: barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, odd objects, cables, and bodyweight.
This doesn’t even include any other planes of movement too, like a bench press or incline press.
Of course if you want to get good at one specific thing its good to stick to that. But using these variations its easy to get around any possible plateaus you have. And you won’t get stale practicing just one move over and over your entire life.
Since a vertical press is such an important movement it should always be in your training. But now you can see as far as what form it takes, the sky’s the limit.
Getting a heavy weight overhead is a true test of strength. And a good exercise to set out to improve.
I’ll only be sending you one more message before this year is over. So I wanted to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. However you celebrate this occasion, make sure you spend the time well and don’t neglect to finish off 2008 with some great workouts.
