E.O.M-Overhead Partial Barbell Press
Today's Exercise of the Month for December is great for the triceps as well as the shoulders. To begin, just do a traditional overhead press ( military press ) with a normal grip and foot stance you would use. Now from the lockout lower the bar just until the bar grazes the top of your hair. Press the bar up and then you have completed one rep. Keeping the range of motion just to the top half really allows the focus to stay on the triceps and lets you keep heavy loads still which helps the triceps grow! The main key to keep in mind is to make sure the bar stays directly overhead and to not let it come in front of the face like a traditional press. By doing so it helps take some delt work and helps even more with the triceps.
