Cable Standing Shoulder Press

Cable Standing Shoulder Press


Utility: Basic or Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



Stand between two low to medium height pulleys. Grasp cable stirrups from each side. Position stirrups to each side of shoulders with elbows down to sides and stirrups above or slightly narrower than elbows.


Push stirrups upward until arms are extended overhead. Return stirrups to sides of shoulders and repeat.


Wrists maintain their approximate position above each elbow throughout movement. Feet may be positioned apart to each side or one foot back as shown. Cable pulleys should be much closer together than what is typically found on standard cable cross over setup.
