Shoulder Press/Overhead Press

Shoulder presses are the starting point for all shoulder work and development. Positioning yourself safely to press overhead is a great way to mobilize and strengthen your shoulders and upper body. Focus your shoulder work on strong but safe press as the base and add in other auxiliary work to round out your workout.

You can begin this movement sitting or standing, with dumbbells or a barbell. When the weight is in place, lock your shoulder down and back. Safely press the weight straight up by squeezing your shoulders. Always press from in front of your head to avoid any alignment issues or strain to your neck.
