Quick Tip About Shoulder Press Form
If you experience shoulder discomfort while performing the Seated DB Shoulder Press, check this video out. A common cause of discomfort is keeping your elbows excessively flared back while doing the shoulder press, placing your shoulders in an awkward position at the bottom of the press.
If flaring the elbows feels uncomfortable to you, try keeping your elbows slightly tucked. This helps you keep the chest up while doing the shoulder press and allows the shoulder to travel in a more neutral path.
This is not to say that elbow flare on the Shoulder Press by definition is “bad.” But if you experience discomfort while doing the Shoulder Press, the form with your elbows being tucked is worth a try.
