Seated Behind Neck Press Benefits


  • The neck press is an effective exercise for developing shoulder muscles, increasing shoulder stability and range of motion, but it puts pressure on your rotator cuff muscles that stabilize your shoulder joints. That’s why it’s more important to get the movement right than to lift too much weight.
