Standing Band Shoulder Press Overview 

The Standing Band Shoulder Press is a great exercise for overall shoulder development. By using a band, you can create resistance in all directions, which is essential for balanced muscle growth. Additionally, the Standing Band Shoulder Press allows you to keep good form while still challenging your muscles, which is important for preventing injuries.

How to Do

  1. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, step on one side of the band and hold the other side of the resistance band in each hand with your palms facing forward.
  2. Raise your arms up to shoulder height, keeping your elbows and wrists in line with your shoulders.
  3. From here, press the bands overhead, extending your arms fully.
  4. Return to the starting position. 
  5. Repeat for the desired number of reps.

Standing Band Shoulder Press Tips

  1. Keep your abdominal muscles pulled in tight and avoid arching your back throughout the exercise.
  2. Don't let your elbows flare out to the sides as you press the bands overhead.
  3. Focus on pressing from your shoulder, not just your arms.
  4. Keep the momentum out of the way.

Healthier and Happier Life is One Step Away.
