Seated shoulder press lockout

by Tim

To do the exercise position a shoulder press bench in the power rack and then set the safety pins of the power rack so that they are a couple inches above your head.

Rest a barbell on the safety pins and press the bar right off the pins, from the bottom up (do NOT rack and un-rack the weight like you would with a regular shoulder press).

Start off light and get used to the exercise and the range of motion. Then pyramid up in weight with each set until you get to a heavy weight that makes you work hard to complete 5 reps.

You may want to wear a weight lifting belt on your heavy sets as this will help support and stabilize your mid-section and generally allow you to lift heavier weights when doing overhead presses.
