I'm ready to learn the overhead barbell press, but am very confused about the head, neck, and torso motion. When do you tilt in, when do you tilt out?
Can someone clarify this? The arms are clear but not the neck, head, or torso.
UPDATE: What's confusing me? Some sources talk about moving your head out of the way, and then bringing it back again once the bar passes. That's simple enough: move the bar up as far as you can till your head blocks it, move your head back, and, once the bar passes it, return your head. But SS describes something totally different: not that your head is in the way, but simply you need to get the bar overhead, so you move your torso? This is confusing: If I push the bar straight up, and so never come into the path of my head, what exactly am I doing with my torso? I'm supposed to lean forward, to place my head under the bar? I'm not sure I'm understanding that correctly, but, if I am, that's a confusing thing to do. Why do I need to stick my head out under the bar. Unless something else is meant.
