Bag Overhead Press (Kettlebell Style)

Bag PressThumbnail

Let’s face it, some of you carry bags that are the equivalent of a fairly large kettlebell or dumbbell. Why not put them to use to strengthen the shoulders with an overhead press? Dr. Brett McIff with the Utah Department of Health walks Mary through this exercise.

Using one arm, while sitting on the edge of a stable chair, raise the bag (or other weight) over your head. Start at a level that your hand is level with your eyes, and finish with the arm fully extended over your head. Return to the start position and repeat on each side 8-12 repetitions, 1-3 sets.
