Shoulder Press Variation Exercise For Women

Here is a variation of the shoulder press. Be very careful when moving the barbell behind your neck. Watch the video closely and only attempt when comfortable to do so and with a partner. It is vital for safety to ensure your neck stays neutral.

By moving the bar to the back of your neck you will be involving your rear delts.

Your rear delts are responsible for pulling your upper arm backwards (rows involve the rear delts). Having strong rear delts will help prevent rotator cuff injuries and will help improve other exercises, such as in the bench press, where they act as stability muscles.

Always make sure you target your rear delts when working the shoulder muscles.
