Shoulder press behind the head


Fix the carriage so that the handle bar is at neck height.

Starting position

Firm, parallel stance with straight back. Grasp the handle bar far to the outside.


Press the handlebars evenly upwards until your arms are almost straight. Then slowly return to the starting position. Before reaching the lower stop, push the handle bar up again.


Important: always ensure a stable and straight posture. Do not fall into a hollow back. The body tension in the torso area must be maintained at all times.



The occasional criticism that this exercise is not good for the shoulder joints is not entirely correct. This exercise is very important precisely because of the somewhat unnatural posture of the shoulders. However, you should approach this over several weeks at a very low weight. Determine whether your shoulders can tolerate the movement and strain. If you feel discomfort or pain, switch to a different exercise for your shoulder training.
