Shoulder press

Any advice for seated shoulder press ?? should the board be vertical or slightly at an angled and also where should my elbows be ? inline with my shoulders or slightly forward ?

I'm obviously doing it wrong as experiencing a wincing pain in my right front delt.

    Hi mate
    Shoulder Presses - I do them with the bench on its highest setting which is just off vertical
    Palms should face away from you
    start out light till you get the technique sorted - the poundage will soon creep up

    i had a similar problem pain wise when i tried doing behind the neck press on the smith machine. Seems my shoulders didnt like the rigidity of the smith machine and once i started doing them with a BB, the pain went away.

    May be worth trying this exercise with a BB instead of using the machine...
