Barbell Shoulder Press - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Position a bench in a squat rack and sit on it. It’s recommended that you use a bench with back support.

Step 2

Place a barbell at a height that’s just over your head.

Step 3

Take hold of the barbell. Use a pronated grip (palms facing forward) for this.

Step 4

Adjust your grip width and lift the barbell overhead. Your arms should be extended upwards and locked. The barbell should be almost parallel to your chest. This is your starting position.

Step 5

Lower down the barbell to your shoulders slowly as your breathe in until it almost touches your chest.

Step 6

Slowly lift the barbell up back to the starting position.

Step 7

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
