Pressing strength

If you are looking for some extra strength work for shoulders and upper back to make those overhead movements easier consider following this for the next 4 weeks. It’s one session a week, and should not take you more than hour or so to complete, scale movements as you need to if you have any questions. Fire away in comments bellow.
