How To Do A Seated Machine Shoulder Press Exercise Demonstration Video and Guide

The Seated Machine Shoulder Press is an exercise that targets the shoulders.

I prefer facing the back pad, as the range of motion is more vertical than when your face out.

By facing out, it pulls in the chest muscles, as the range of motion is not as vertical as the range of motion when facing the back pad.

This places more emphasis on the shoulders, and less emphasis on the chest.

I also like to complete a single arm machine shoulder press as an activation exercise before I hit the shoulders with a compound exercise.

To get started:

  1. Sit down on the shoulder press machine seat, and grab both handles with a palms facing out grip.
  2. Contract your shoulders by extending your arms up.
  3. Under control, slowly lower the weight by bending your elbows.
  4. Repeat.
