Machine Seated Shoulder Press

Machine Seated Shoulder Press
The machine seated shoulder press is a weight training exercise that primarily targets the shoulders, but also engages the triceps, upper back, and core muscles. It is performed using a machine with a seat, backrest, and handles that move up and down on a vertical axis.

To perform the exercise, sit on the machine with your back against the backrest and adjust the seat and handles to your height. Grab the handles with an overhand grip and lift them up to shoulder height, keeping your elbows at a 90-degree angle. Press the handles up and overhead until your arms are fully extended, then slowly lower them back down to the starting position.

It is important to maintain proper form throughout the exercise, keeping your core engaged and avoiding any arching of the back. Start with a light weight and gradually increase the resistance as you become stronger and more comfortable with the movement.

The machine seated shoulder press is a great exercise for building strength and size in the shoulders, and can be included in a well-rounded weight training program for overall upper body development.
