Shoulder press behind the head

Preparation

Fix the slide so that the handle bar is at the level of the neck.

Starting position

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

Execution

Push handle bar evenly upward until arms are almost extended. Then slowly move back again. Before reaching the lower stop, push up again.

Hint

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

Variants

Warning

The criticism voiced from time to time 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, it should be done with moderate resistance.
