SETUP: Support your back with a bench at a 90* angle. Keep your shoulders pinned back, chest puffed out.
LIFT: We start with our dumbbells slightly lower than a 90* angle. Press them up in a straight line, do not bring the weights together overhead as you would on a typical seated shoulder press.
TIP: You may need a lighter weight versus a standard shoulder press. The key difference with the “X” Press is the way we finish the rep – notice the motion is straight up, straight down? This forces constant tension on the shoulders by removing the overhead lockout portion of a shoulder press.
