half straddle press position

The most difficult phase of the swing or press is this — hands, shoulders, hips over the base of support.

The more hip flexion, the more straddled the split, the better.

Practice jumping or pressing to this position against the wall.

One thought on “half straddle press position”

  1. Our Russian coaches were big on spending more time going from straddle L to half press. That is the hard/technical part of the skill…the ending is quite simple.

    ESPECIALLY useful for beam.
