Standing Military Press - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Place a barbell on a squat rack at chest height. Place the weights according to your preference.

Step 3

Bend your knees and let the handle touch your upper chest.

Step 4

Lift the barbell off the rack while keeping it resting on your chest.

Step 5

Step back and move your feet shoulder width away from each other.

Adjust your grip and lift the barbell up overhead. Lock your arms. The barbell should be parallel to your upper chest. This is your starting position.
