You will want to choose a weight that it will be challenging but manageable to do those sets of 6 strict press. You will then use that same weight for the swings - with the option of going heavier on those if you really want to. Up to you. Those should be in no more than 2 sets each time.
For the single arm strict press you will hold a single dumbbell or kb at the shoulder. Using no assistance from your lower body you will press the weight straight UP! Finish with the weight over the middle of your body and the bicep by the ear.
Keep the belly tight on these and avoid overextending or leaning back. You can even sit down if you want!
You will do 6 on one side then 6 on the other.
For the swings you will hold the weight with both hands at the waist. Hinge forward at the hips and allow a slight bend of the knee. Pull the weight through the legs and keep the chest up (no round back) and belly tight! Stand up hard and fast to help make the bell weightless as you guide it to eye level with your upper body.
Arms stay pretty straight. Belly tight. Heels down.
Allow gravity to bring the weight back down, but don't let it pull YOU forward. Keep the belly tight and the heels down!
SINGLE ARM STRICT PRESS -
Focus on proper alignment of your pelvis and spine. If you find yourself over extending in your back or coning in your belly sub less weight, Seated Strict Press, or even Front Raises.
KB SWING -
If you notice and coning or pulling in the overhead position of the swing, sub shoulder height or eye level swings and focus on posture and breathing mechanics. If the shape of your body (preggo bellies!) is making the bottom position a little too tight for comfort, you can sub a single arm swing!
