Exercise How to: Standing Shoulder Press

Shoulder Press

Hold weights (palms facing out) ear level. (*Photograph error -- taken as Kerri was raising weights. Weights in hand, arms should be parallel to floor before pushing weights up.

Be sure to keep head up / back straight.

Press up toward the ceiling. Pause.

Lower again. If you need to swing or jerk the weights this is an indicator that the weights are too heavy.

Practice nice, slow movements.
