Seated Overhead Press on Bench

(Ab stabilization/Back Stabilization, Shoulder Power)

Big move, watch this move carefully before doing, can be done with dumbells as well. If you have shoulder problems, this is not a beginning exercise for you. Shoulder pain means you are limited until you understand how that pain can be supported and healed!

  • Abs remain active through entire move, chest is lifted, shoulders are on the back, elbows and shoulders feel the squeeze, feel the weight drive your butt bones into the bench, low back is on strong
  • Inhale as weight comes down, exhale as weight is pressed overhead, elbows never lock when over head and the weight never goes below the chin

2-3 sets of 10-15 reps (start lighter at first just to get the move understood, then push for fatigue with more reasonably challenging weight)
