EP.113 | Opening up your Overhead Positioning!!
Standing Preacher Stretch: a more advanced version of Puppy Dog
This particular stretch is fantastic for opening up your overhead positioning, as well as your front rack positioning for cleans and/or front squats.
Key Points for the Standing Preacher Stretch
-Assume a false grip on the bar (as shown in the video)
-Sink your hips back (similar to a good morning)
-Slowly let your lats & triceps open up to get ready to receive the barbell
As needed. As you experiment with this stretch, you will improve you positioning over time. Some days may require a few minutes longer due to soreness and other tightness.
