Barbell Shoulder Press: Seated

from Allen Elliott

Place loaded bar on military bench. Position bar at a height so when seated, the arms are almost fully extended when grabbing bar. Place hands with pronated grip, push up and un-rack bar with arms fully extended. Inhale while slowly lowering the bar to chest level level. Exhale while pushing the bar back up without locking your elbows. Repeat this movement for all reps then re-rack bar.
