SEATED BARBELL SHOULDER PRESS

SEATED BARBELL SHOULDER PRESS


VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: If your gym doesnt’ have a dedicated shoulder press rack, position a 90* bench inside a power rack with the safety bars set to slightly below chin level.
  2. LIFT: Unrack the barbell and and position it level with your chin. This is the bottom of the rep and your elbows will be slightly below a 90* angle. Press the bar straight up, while keeping your shoulders pinned back to the bench.
  3. TIP: Ideal grip placement on this exercise depends on forearm length. At the bottom of the rep you’ll see that my forearms point straight up. If your arms are not pointing straight up at this point of the rep, you either went too narrow or too wide, so adjust.
