  2. Barbell OHP or BP

It strikes me that it’s much easier to train assistance exercises after bench pressing...

  5. Barbell Barbell Overhead Press form

    Hello all, I have a question about the overhead pressing form used in the StrongFirst Barbell curriculum. My barbell training was done by Starting Strength certified trainers. The Starting Strength barbell press actually starts with a forward hip thrust to trigger a reaction in the kinetic...

    Barbell Balance in barbell exercises

    I started doing some basic barbell exercises: bench press, squat, overhead press. I noticed that I have a hard time keeping the barbell parallel to the floor, especially on presses. I know that my left hand/arm is a bit weaker, but I am guessing most of the imbalance comes from the lack of...
