Exercise 6 - Shoulder press

Tips to make your Home Workouts more challenging!


Its been 4 weeks now since the lockdown and those bodyweight exercises may be becoming too easy or tedious. So we will be sending you daily exercises you can do with items around the house. Everyone has some paint pots, heavy objects or even some empty milk gallons they can fill to provide a more challenging workout!


We call this the Paint Pot Chronicles!


Muscles aching yet? If not, give these a go!


Step 1

Starting Position: Stand tall with your chest out or sit on a chair holding your pot of choice in each hand at shoulder height with your palms facing away from you.


Step 2

Press the weights directly upwards until your arms are straight and the pots touch above your head.


Step 3

Slowly lower the weights back to the start position under control, pause, then start the next rep.


Step 4

Keep your back as straight as possible throughout the movement. Do as many reps as you can for 5 sets with 1 minute rests in between sets. 


You can also opt for a neutral grip (palms facing you) to conduct a hammer press.
