Shoulder Press Form
« on: October 18, 2012, 05:26:58 AM »
The shoulder press is a popular exercise. The common 'bodybuilding' form for the shoulder press is with the elbows out. This form will cause harm to your rotator cuff in the long term. A safer way to press is with your elbows slightly in and forward, you will be in a much stronger position.

Do you press the bodybuilding way?

No, elbows slightly in and forward will increase your strength because you are in a more compact and stable position, that's the point. Elbows slightly in will reduce the risk of injury and increase the load, it's a win-win.
