How to Do Machine Shoulder Press
- Adjust the machine to the appropriate settings, sit down, and grip the handles.
- Press the handles upwards until your arms are straight.
- Lower the handles with control.
The machine shoulder press is an exercise that offers more stability and requires less balance and coordination than shoulder presses with for example dumbbells or a barbell. That could lead to an increased focus on the muscles worked, and also makes it easy to learn for a beginner.
