Barbell Shoulder Press

Instructions

Preparation

Grasp barbell with slightly wider than shoulder width overhand grip from rack. Position bar near upper chest.

Execution

Press bar upward until arms are extended overhead. Return to upper chest and repeat.

Comments

Set barbell on forward rack slightly below shoulder height so bar may be more easily mounted and racked. Position seat so bar does not hit uprights but close enough to easily mount and rack. Range of motion will be compromised if grip is too wide.
