Front Shoulder Press Overview

A shoulder press machine can help you build a stronger and bigger shoulder. You can add weights to the machine to add resistance to the exercise. However, if you are new to the shoulder press machine, make sure to start with lesser or zero weight.

Using the machine helps in the isolation of your deltoid muscles. You also need to have the optimal core strength to do the exercise. You can add this exercise to your upper body or arm and back workouts.

How to Do It

  1. Adjust the seat of the machine to your height. Sit on the seat.
  2. The bar of the machine should be at shoulder height.
  3. Your back should be against the pad, and your feet pressed and flat on the floor.
  4. You should bend your knees at a 90-degree angle.
  5. Hold the bars with an overhand grip. Your elbows should be bent.
  6. Lift the weight over your head. Pause at the top but avoid locking your elbows.
  7. Lower the bars in a slow and controlled motion.  

Front Shoulder Press Tips

  1. Start with a comfortable weight. Gradually add the weight to the machine.
  2. Focus on engaging your core muscles.
