Coach's Tips

It is a workout that can develop the front and sides of your shoulder. Even beginners can get the form correctly as the machine controls the direction of the movement.

How to

Starting Position

1. Sit down on the shoulder press machine and adjust the seat height so that the handles are at shoulder level. 2. Grasp the handles with an overhand grip, and position your elbows slightly below your shoulders. 3. Ensure that your feet are flat on the floor and your back is straight.

Proper Form

1. Exhale as you press the handles up slowly and in a controlled manner until your arms are almost straight. 2. Hold at the top for a moment and then slowly lower the handles back to the starting position. 3. Continue for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower the handles and exhale as you press them up. 2. Make sure to keep your breathing slow and steady throughout the exercise.

Precautions

1. Make sure not to lock your elbows at the top of the exercise as this can cause strain on the joints. 2. Do not swing the weight up as this can cause injury to your shoulder. 3. Keep your back straight throughout the exercise and do not arch your back as this can lead to lower back pain.
