Seated cable shoulder press

The seated cable shoulder press is a multijoint machine-based exercise that focuses on the deltoid or shoulder muscles, as well as the triceps. It's most common in muscle-building workouts and rep ranges, usually 8-12 reps or more.


  1. Cables provide constant tension throughout movement
  2. Using D-handles with cables allows you to rotate the shoulders naturally during the movement
  3. Simple to change weights to perform dropsets or burnout sets
