Smith machine shoulder press

The Smith machine shoulder press is a machine-based exercise targeting the deltoid muscles. The Smith machine mimics a barbell but provides more stability. This movement can be programmed in low reps for strength or higher reps for muscle and strength endurance. It is often performed for moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or more, as part of a shoulder or upper-body focused workout.

Benefits

  1. Adds size and strength to the shoulders
  2. Can press intensely without fear of dropping the bar
  3. The bar moves on a track making it easier to get into position and control
