A common fault exhibited by athletes while push pressing is the sliding of the system backwards during upwards extension. Basically, this means that the knees are extending at a faster rate than the hips are driving up. The result is force being displaced more horizontally rather than vertically – a big problem if trying to maximize power transfer to the bar.
Coach Wu Jian Lin is demonstrating this fault and showing students what a proper dip and drive for the push press should look like. Interestingly, the girls seemed to exhibit this fault more so than the boys at the school. This is just my personal observation. I have no correlation of this observation to anything else.
