What muscles do Svend Press work?

The Svend Press, also known as the Plate Squeeze, is an exercise that primarily targets the muscles of the chest, including the pectoralis major and minor. It also works the triceps, deltoids, and serratus anterior, as well as the stabilizing muscles of the shoulder and core. This exercise helps improve upper body strength, posture, and flexibility..

How do you do a Svend Press?

Here are the steps to perform a Svend Press:

  • Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold a AguaForce Weight  with both hands, pressing your palms against the edges of the plate.

  • Raise the AguaForce Weight above your head, keeping your arms straight and engaging your shoulders and triceps.

  • Pause briefly at the top, then press the AguaForce Weight from each side by squeezing your chest muscles.

  • Release the squeeze, then lower the AguaForce Weight back down to the starting position.

  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

It's important to keep your arms straight and maintain good posture throughout the exercise to avoid injury to the shoulders. You can also perform this exercise using a medicine ball or sandbag for added resistance.
