Barbell Shoulder Press

1. Seated on a bench, take a shoulder-width grip on the bar with your palms fadng forward.
2. lower the weight slowly (in front) until it touches your upper chest.
3. Push vertically upward until your elbows lock out

Muscles Involved
PrImary: Anterior deltoid.
Secondary: lateral deltoid, triceps, trapezius, and upper pectoralis.

Anatomic Focus
Hand spacing: A shoulder-width grip is preferred to target the anterior deltoid. Wider grips on the bar minimize triceps contribution, but as the
grip gets wider the risk of shoulder injury increases.

Range of motion: A shorter rep terminating the press Just before lockout keeps tension on the deltoid.
Positioning: Performing the exercise while seated upright Is a stricter version than standing and prevents cheating the weight upward using momentum generated by the legs
