PowerBlock Shoulder Press — Standing

[Elite_video_player id=”566″]

Muscle Groups
  • Shoulders
  • Deltoid strength.
  • Triceps strength.


The PowerBlock shoulder press performed while standing strengthens the anterior shoulders, triceps, and upper chest. The standing position requires your core muscles and hips to stabilize your upper-body as you press the weight overhead. This exercise is good for developing strong, well-defined shoulder muscles. You can use dumbbells in place of a barbell to add variety to your training and to further isolate the shoulder muscles.


  • Standing tall, hold the dumbbells in your hands at shoulder level, palms forward.
  • Keep your back straight and your chest up at all time.
  • Press the dumbbells straight up until your arms are straight and the elbows are in line with your ears.
  • Lower the dumbbells back to shoulder level.


  • Excessive arching of the back.
  • Pressing the dumbbells too far in front of the head, instead of directly overhead.
