How To Perform the Viking Press

  1. Start by positioning yourself between the handles of a Viking Press machine or bar.
  2. Grasp the handles with a firm, overhand grip, ensuring your hands are shoulder-width apart.
  3. Stand with your feet hip-width apart, with a slight bend in your knees for stability.
  4. Engage your core and keep your back straight; your chest should be up and shoulders back.
  5. Press the handles upward and slightly forward until your arms are fully extended overhead.
  6. Pause briefly at the top, ensuring your arms are straight but not locked out.
  7. Lower the handles back down to shoulder level in a controlled manner.
  8. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions, maintaining proper form throughout.

Pro Tips for Viking Press

  • Focus on maintaining a tight core to stabilize your spine and prevent lower back strain.
  • Keep your elbows slightly in front of your body during the press to reduce shoulder joint stress.
  • Avoid locking out your elbows at the top to keep tension on the muscles.
  • Use a controlled motion when lowering the handles to prevent jerking movements.
  • Start with a lighter weight to master the form before progressing to heavier weights.
