PowerBlock Shoulder Press — Standing

Muscle Groups
  • Shoulders
Purposes
  • Deltoid strength.
  • Triceps strength.

Overview

The PowerBlock shoulder press performed while standing strengthens the anterior shoulders, triceps, and upper chest. The standing position requires your core muscles and hips to stabilize your upper-body as you press the weight overhead. This exercise is good for developing strong, well-defined shoulder muscles. You can use dumbbells in place of a barbell to add variety to your training and to further isolate the shoulder muscles.

Description

  • Standing tall, hold the dumbbells in your hands at shoulder level, palms forward.
  • Keep your back straight and your chest up at all time.
  • Press the dumbbells straight up until your arms are straight and the elbows are in line with your ears.
  • Lower the dumbbells back to shoulder level.

Mistakes

  • Excessive arching of the back.
  • Pressing the dumbbells too far in front of the head, instead of directly overhead.
