SHOULDER PRESS BEHIND THE HEAD

Preparation

Position the carriage so that the grip bar is at nose height.

Starting Position

Stand firmly with the feet shoulder-width and keep a straight back. Grasp the bar towards the ends.

Execution

Press the bar upwards with even pressure until the arms are fully extended. Then return slowly to the starting position. Before you reach the lower stop, press back up again.

Hint

Important: ensure your posture is always stable and straight. Do not let your back arch. Maintain the tension of the muscles of your torso. The shoulders remain down.

Warning

The further the bar is lowered, the greater the risk of injury to the shoulders. This exercise is very complex and must be performed only with the guidance of a trainer or experienced training partner.
