Machine Shoulder Press

This is a very good strength exercise that can build good base level of muscle in the shoulder region. There is a fixed plan of motion, so little technical ability is needed to make the exercise effective. A great all-round shoulder exercise.

STEP 1. Adjust the seat height, aligning the horizontal handles with the top of your shoulders. Depress the foot level and ensure that your back is comfortably supported. Sit tall in the seat.

STEP 2. Push up, extending your arms over your head in a controlled manner. Avoid any snapping or locking out of the elbows.

STEP 3. Return to the start position in a controlled way and complete the remainder of your reps.
