The supine sandbag overhead pullover to press. A mouthful to say that’s for sure. This is an outstanding core exercise as the front stabilizer muscles are working super hard to resist motion and therefore making them super strong.
Activating the core is one big aspect of the exercise, although many more benefits come from this as well including strengthening of the rotator cuff muscles and chest.
Using light weight for beginners and corrective / rehabilitative means. Suitable for advanced users with a heavier load to strengthen and build stability transferable for many other lifts including overhead press and snatch.
