Behind-the-Neck Shoulder Press


  1. Behind the neck shoulder press
    Start with a light barbell resting across your traps, as if you’re about to squat. Place your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width. You can start with your pinkies in the ring of the knurling (the rough part of the barbell) and adjust your hands from there. Tuck your elbows in and then press the bar straight up until your elbows are fully extended. Lower the bar back down slowly.
