Considered one of the most effective ways to strengthen shoulders, the shoulder press is  a staple in strength training programs. Learn how how to perform this popular front and medial shoulder exercise with the team at Fitness Institute!

Machine: Life Fitness Shoulder Press

To begin, set the appropriate seat height and weight. Preference and comfort will determine hand placement.

Sit down, place feet flat on the floor and hold onto the handles (Figure 1).

From here, drive arms up until elbows are locked out (Figure 2). Brace through the core but don’t arch the back.

Slowly lower the arms to return to the start position.

Remember to seek the advice of your fitness trainer, medical and/or allied health professionals, if you are new to exercise or have an injury or medical condition to consider.
