Lateral Core Training: Tall Kneeling Anti-Rotation Press to Overhead

Lateral core variation #4. This variation is a hybrid because the initial press-out requires using the core to resist rotation, and then the move to overhead shifts the stress to the lateral core to prevent leaning toward the cable column.

Before pressing out, set-up by pushing your knees through the ground and reaching your head tall. Maintain this position and pressure as you move the cable. Many people can’t get their arms fully overhead, so only go as far as you can without arching your back or losing height.

Typically performed for 3 sets of 6-10 reps. Progressed by adding load.
