Barbell Seated Military Press

Muscle Groups Worked:


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.


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.
