This exercise can be done either standing or sitting and with either dumbbells or a barbell. Standing with a barbell is the preferred method though.
Starting position – just like the behind the neck press except with the weight in front of your head. When using a barbell it can rest on your upper chest.
Movement – lift the weight directly above your head without locking your arms into the straight position. Then lower the weight back down to your chest slowly.
Note – Keep your back straight and flexed.
