How to: Barbell Shoulder Press

Primary Muscles Used:Shoulders

Secondary Muscles Used:Triceps

Equipment:Barbell, Incline Bench

Trainer:Stephanie Sanzo

  1. Set a barbell up on a squat rack at approximately chest height. Place an incline bench, set to a 80- to 85-degree incline, in the centre of the squat rack so that the seat is slightly behind the bar. Sit down on the bench and place both hands on the bar with an overhand grip (palms facing away from your body), slightly wider than your shoulders. Push the bar up to gently release it from the rack. This is your starting position.
  2. Inhale. Bend your elbows and lower the bar in front of you to just below chin height.
  3. Exhale. Using the muscles in your shoulders, extend your elbows to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions before returning the bar to racked position.
