Having strong, injury resistant shoulders is a must on the mat. And while you don’t press a lot of things over your head while rolling the Shoulder Press is one of the best ways to achieve that.
However, just pressing weight over your head isn’t the idea – there are specific postures and movements you need to practice in order to see the best transfer to the mat.
In this video I show you some of the ways you can get more out of the Shoulder Press for BJJ. I also show you a couple of cool variations you can add to your routines as well as show you how the basic movement behind the Shoulder Press does come into play on the mat.
If you haven’t been doing Shoulder Presses as part of your BJJ strength training routine then start out with 3 sets of 5 reps, focusing on strict form and posture for the first 2 weeks. After that you can start to focus a bit more on doing more weight or reps but always keep the quality of your movement as high as possible.
