General And Specifics

  • the strain on the lower back and the shoulders is less than in the Shoulder Press With Barbell
  • because of the unilateral shoulder training, the core has to stabilize the posture
  • put a pillow or a folded towel under your knees to prevent aches

Starting Position

  • place one end of the barbell at an edge, so that it cannot slip away
  • hold the other end in one hand
  • if you want to train the left shoulder, put your left knee on the ground
  • the distance between knee and wall should be about two thirds of the barbell
  • bend the right knee to 90 degrees and put the foot onto the ground for a stable position
  • hold the end of the barbell in shoulder-height
  • the upper arm rests against the upper body
  • put the free hand to the hip
  • your back is straight
  • Correct Execution

    • brace the core
    • push the weight up and away
    • do not let the weight wander to the sides
    • the elbow remains in a line with the upper arm and forearm
    • let the barbell sink down again
    • do several reps on one side
    • afterwards, switch sides and do the same number of reps
