Shoulders - SEATED Barbell Shoulder Press
- Take position on either a flat bench or a bench that offers back support if you feel more comfortable. Keep your core tight, place your feet flat on the floor and take a medium to wide grip on the bar. This is your starting position.
- From the starting position with the bar on the very upper part of your chest, extend the arms up and raise the bar over 1-2 seconds as you breathe out. Do not lock out with the elbows so tension remains on the shoulders.
- Lower the bar over 1-2 seconds as you breathe in. The bottom of the movement is where you palms are level with your shoulders and the bar is back at the starting position.
