Barbell Seated Military Press

Barbell Seated Military Press


Utility: Basic
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



Grasp barbell with slightly wider than shoulder width overhand grip from rack. Position bar near upper chest.


Press bar upward until arms are extended overhead. Return to upper chest and repeat.


Set barbell on forward rack slightly below shoulder height so bar may be more easily unracked and racked. Position seat so bar does not hit uprights but close enough to easily mount and rack. Range of motion will be compromised if grip is too wide. Grip is slightly narrower than shoulder press. Torso is postured more upright than traditional Military Press.
