Summary

The 2-Hand Angled Press takes advantage of the displacement of mass that a Steel Club offers by taking the heavier head of the Steel Club and tilting it back towards the body at a 45 degree angle. This forces the user to initiate a push-pull relationship with the implement in order to control its position. As with the other extension press drills, the goal of this drill is to refer as much of the work performed during the drill from the upper body and into the core.

Exercise Steps

Step 1: Clean the Steel Club into the Ready Position aligned with the shoulder of the top hand.

Step 2: Tuck your pelvis and brace your core.

Step 3: Press the Steel Club forward and up in a 45 degree angle towards your mid-line while keeping your shoulders back and down.

Step 4: Maintain tension in core and lats as you pull the Steel Club back into rack. Repeat.
