Benefits of the Precor Shoulder Press - Front Grip

  • The Precor shoulder press exercise works the deltoid muscles.
  • Anytime that your arms are over your head you are using your deltoids.  Have you ever tried to change the air filter in your house and it is just a little too hard, this exercise will make that task easier.
  • The front grip allows you to work your shoulders in an overhead fashion even if normal overhead presses cause pain in your shoulders.  The forward and neutral grip keep your shoulder in a safe and comfortable position.
  • By using the Precor shoulder press machine you are taking out the need for stabilizers, this allows you to go heavier and not worry so much about form.
  • The precor shoulder press combined with my rotator cuff program, is a great way to rehabilitate an injured shoulder.
