Seated Behind the Neck Barbell Shoulder Press
Exercise for shoulders and triceps
Exercise execution guide
Sit down on the bench with your back straight and your chest bulged. Unrack the bar using an overhand (pronated) grip, your elbows pointing outward. The bar stands behind you at neck’s level. This level may vary depending on your shoulders’ flexibility. The gap between your hands should be such that your elbows are forming a 90° angle when your arms are parallel to the floor.
Squeeze your shoulders while pressing the weight vertically. Stop the movement when your arms are about to be fully outstretched. Then, come back slowly to the starting position.
