Hey, this is Danny J. I'm in South Lake, Texas at Camp Hero Fitness, and I'm going to show you how to do a front shoulder press. A front shoulder press is just like a normal shoulder press but you just angle your arms in a little bit. So your normal shoulder press is you're going to start at a 90 degree angle and press up with the barbells together. On the front shoulder press you're actually starting with your 90 degree angle facing forward so your dumbbells are in front of you and you're going to press straight up with your palms facing each other and bring it straight down. A great way to remember this is to keep those elbows pointed forward always, palms facing each other, elbows in front. You don't want those elbows out to the side because that's a totally different exercise. Front shoulder press just remember arms are in front. The front shoulder press works the front ahead of the shoulders. There's actually three different parts of the shoulder and it's very important to work all three. You've got your front, your medial and your rear delts so working these front shoulder presses is really going to help shape those front delts and it's also going to keep you from injury from having too much strength in the rear and the side delts. Again, this is Danny J. We're in Camp Hero Fitness, and I just showed you how to do a front shoulder press.
