Barbell Seated Military Press

Muscle Groups Worked:

Shoulders

How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start seated with your thumbs shoulder width apart on a barbell, having your arms in a locked out position.

2) With your elbows at a 90 degree angle to your body,  lower the barbell in front of your face down to your chest.

3) Without resting the bar on your chest, and keeping your arms at a 90 degree angle, raise the bar back upward to the locked arms position above your head.

Notes:

Keep your chest expanded throughout the movement, and don’t tilt your head too far backward or you will have problems taking a deep breath during the exercise, resulting in poorer performance. ¬†Try not to shrug your shoulders too much, as this is mostly a deltoid exercise.
