With Seated Military Press you can work mainly on your front shoulders, but the middle deltoids are also involved in this exercise. The more your elbows are turned sideways, the more middle deltoids are involved in the movement.


Grab the barbell with shoulder width, or a little wider. Raise the weight above your head. Start lowering the weight to the line of your chin, then raise it back up above your head.


Do not straighten out your arms fully at the top as that would put unnecessary pressure on your elbows and triceps, and here your shoulder muscles would not be working.

Do not lower the weight too low as this would put too much unnecessary pressure on your shoulder joints.

This exercise can be replaced with Dumbbell Shoulder Press, or with Machine Shoulder Press.
