Shoulder Press (Machine Seated)

Target Muscles: Anterior and medial deltoids, Upper Pectoralis major, Triceps, Shoulder girdle muscles (Trapezius, Supraspinatus) Starting Position: 1. Sit at a shoulder press machine 2. Place your hands on the handles with a shoulder width grip. The Movement: 1. Press the handles upwards, straightening your arms but do not lock out your elbows. Hold momentarily. 2. Lower the handles slowly back to the starting position. Tips: • Keep your torso upright - don't lean backwards or arch your spine as you press the cables upwards as this will strain your lower back. • Hold your abdominal muscles taut to help stabilize your spine or, if you are using a very heavy weight, wear a weightlifting belt. • Don't shorten the movement.
