  • Triceps strength.


The Standing Barbell Overhead Press 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.


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


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