Pick Your Press


Shoulder presses are like snowflakes – each type is unique. That’s what Norwegian researchers found when they evaluated four variations of the exercise: standing, seated, with barbell and with dumbbell. Here’s what each version emphasizes.


Dumbbell standing: Throwing strength, injury prevention

Dumbbell seated: Shoulder size and strength

Barbell standing: Biceps and triceps strength

Barbell seated: 1-rep max strength
