How to push weights from your shoulders

Place your hands on the ground and lean your chest to push up against your elbow to move the weight up straight toward the ground.

Keep your core tight, and your arms straight at the top. Take 3 or 4 deep breaths while still pushing upwards on the shoulder as you move the weight straight upward – and that’s all you do.

The weight that you are pressing with is the weight that is moving back upwards because with the shoulder forward the body is being pushed forward. If you are carrying less than 10% of your body weight on one shoulder, it’s not enough to reach the ground. If you are carrying more than 10% of your body weight on one shoulder, it is too much. If you are carrying 25%, or more weight on one shoulder, that’s way too much too.
