Position 2

Sit erect, keeping your lower back slightly arched and your feet flat on the floor.

Grasp the bar outside of shoulder width with a palms-forward grip, elbows pointing down and outward.

Carefully unrack the bar and hold it at shoulder level.

In a smooth, strong motion, press the bar straight up to just short of elbow lockout.

Squeeze, then lower the bar under control to a point right at your upper chest and clavicle area.

Be sure to pull your face back as the bar passes to avoid giving yourself an impromptu nose job.

Main Targeted Areas:anterior, middle and rear deltoids.
