What muscles do Shoulder Press work?

The movement can help build strength and stability in the shoulders, as well as improve posture and overall upper body strength.s.

How do you do a Shoulder Press?

Here's a step-by-step guide to performing a shoulder press:

  • Start by standing or sitting with your feet shoulder-width apart and AguaForce Weights at shoulder height.

  • Grip AguaForce Weights  with an overhand grip, keeping your elbows slightly bent and the weight directly above your shoulders.

  • From this starting position, press the weight overhead, straightening your arms and engaging your shoulder muscles.

  • Once your arms are fully extended, pause briefly, then lower the weight back to the starting position.

  • Repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions.

Note: It is important to maintain proper form and engage your core throughout the movement to protect your lower back. You may want to start with a lighter weight and gradually increase the weight as you become more comfortable with the movement.
