Exercise Demo: Squat to Press



  1. Stand in good posture with feet shoulder width apart and feet facing forward.
  2. Hold a barbell, dumbbell(s) or kettlebell(s) at clavicle height.


  1. Perform a squat as low as you can while maintaining good form and posture.
  2. Drive back upwards with the legs then press the weight or weights fully overhead.
  3. Return weight(s) back to clavicle height.


  1. You may use one dumbbell or kettlebell to create an asymmetric load, and thus a different exercise.
  2. You may vary your foot position: feet wide/narrow, staggered stance with one foot slightly ahead of the other, toes in/out, or any combination of these positions.  Again, this will create a slightly different exercise.
