PURPOSE OF EXERCISE: To train the front
and side deltoids. Any pressing
movement involves the triceps as well.

EXECUTION: You can do these Presses
standing, but I prefer doing them sitting,
since it makes the movement stricter. (1)
Either lift the barbell overhead and set it
down on your shoulders behind your
head or lift it off the rack of a seated
press bench. (I personally prefer to hold
the bar with a thumbless grip.) (2) Press
the weight straight up and then lower it
again, keeping it under control and your
elbows as far back as possible during
the movement.
