Standing Barbell Press Behind Neck - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Place a barbell on a rack that’s almost the same height as yours. Place the weights on the barbell according to your preference.

Step 2

Step under the bar and place the back of your shoulders (slightly below the neck) across it.

Step 3

Hold the handle with both arms on each side.

Step 4

Lift the barbell off the rack. Lift the barbell with a little push from your legs (bending your knees then immediately reversing the action).

Step 5

Move away from the rack and stand straight. Your feet should be shoulder width away from each other. It’s important to keep your back straight as you do this exercise. This is your starting position.

Step 6

Lift the barbell up by extending your arms overhead. Exhale as you do this. Continue until your arms are fully extended upwards.

Step 7

Pause for a moment then slowly lower the barbell down until you’re back to your starting position. Inhale as you do this.

Step 8

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
