John Gaglione's Wrestling Exercise of the Week # 1



C:\Users\John\Desktop\HHH West Strength\Teaching Pics\One Arm Clean and Press Frame - 1675.jpg
DB Clean and Press

Movement Category: Total Body

Athletic Benefits: The DB Clean and press is an amazing exercise to develop full body power in athletes. It has a much lower learning curve than a barbell clean and press and teaches athletes how to transfer power from the lower body to the upper body, which is a critical skill for all sports.

Exercise Modification: Tall Kneeling Press

Tall Kneeling Single Arm Press

Movement Category: Upper Body Push

Athletic Benefits: The tall kneeling position ensures the athletes will not hyper extend the spine during the exercise, which is a common problem with a traditional overhead press. This will teach younger and weaker athletes the proper position to overhead press from while increasing their shoulder and core strength at the same time.
