Shoulder Exercises – Overhead Press

The overhead press means any exercise where you put weight over your (surprise) head.

It includes Military Presses (another name for the same exercise) and Dumbbell Presses among others. If you do this exercises standing, hold your core tight, tense your glutes so that your spine gets into a neutral position and press slowly upward.

Start with the weight placed on your shoulders, elbows in front. The Head bypasses the barbell not the other way round. Press until the arms are fully extended to get the full ROM. If reached the end position lean a bit(!) forward to full tension.
