Machine Shoulder Press stimulates the front and side area of your shoulders and also involves the triceps and the upper chest fibres.


Sit in the machine comfortably, with a straight back. Grab, then push the handles upwards, do not extend your arms fully at the top. Slowly lower the machine back to starting position.


The more forward your hands are, the more activation you'll feel in your front delts. If you position your hands back, the side delts will be activated more. If you are a beginner, try perfecting the following exercises first: Seated Military Press, Dumbbell Shoulder Presses. The machine can turn off the stabilizing muscles, and you can isolate your delts more.
