Military Press

Increasing Shoulder Strength:

The military press is the main lift for your shoulders. To perform this exercise most effectively, you start with the bar at shoulder height on a rack or on safety hook. Your hands should be placed slightly wider than shoulder width apart and using a pronated grip (hands facing forwards). Once in this position lift the bar up away from the rack or safety hooks and the movement should start with the bar at collarbone height. Maintain a soft knee approach throughout the entirety of the lift and avoid bending backwards; putting strain on your lower back. Press the bar up and move your head underneath squeezing the shoulders at the top of the movement. Once at the top return back to the starting position and perform the desired amount of reps.
