EZ Bar Underhand Press

EZ Bar Underhand Press – Benefits

  • The focus of this exercise is the anterior shoulder muscles. Your elbows flare out to your sides on standard overhand-grip barbell and dumbbell shoulder presses, placing more emphasis on the middle deltoid head. With an underhand grip, the elbows travel more in front of the body, calling on more front-deltoid fibers. To maximize muscle growth, you need to work all the muscle fibers in a muscle, and the best way to achieve this is to use a variety of angles and grips.


Pressing over head is a great way to strengthen the shoulder muscles, but use caution if you have a history of shoulder or neck pain. Rotator cuff strengthening is also very important for people who routinely perform overhead exercises, so remember to include rotator cuff exercises in your workouts.
