Standing Shoulder Press on Bowflex or Similar Weight-Lifting Machine (or Dumbbells)


1) Grasp the hand grips (or dumbbells) so the cables are in line close to the front of your forearms and palms face forward.

2) Stand with feet firmly planted on floor, knees slightly bent.

3) Keep chest up, abs tight and maintain a slight arch in the low back.

4) Raise the hand grips (or dumbbells) to head level so your elbows are equal to shoulder level, keeping the palms facing forward.

5) Straighten your arms slowly over your head, focusing on moving your elbows up and inward toward your ears.

6) Slowly return to the start position, keeping tension on the front shoulder muscles throughout the motion.
