Shoulder Press Machine.jpg


  1. Take position in the shoulder press machine with back pressed against an upright bench, which will most often be fixed into place.

  2. Place your feet flat on the floor and grip the handles taking the majority of the weight in your palms. This helps to target your shoulders. This is the starting position.

  3. Raise the bar up over 1-2 seconds as you breathe out. Do not lock the elbows out at the top of the movement instead keeping the tension on the shoulders.

  4. Lower the bar back to the starting position over 1-2 seconds as you breathe in. The bottom of the movement is where your palms are level with your shoulders.
