Exercise — BOSU Ball Shoulder Press

 

Best for — Shoulders (aka deltoids)

 

Primary Muscles Hit — Front deltoid, middle deltoid, rear deltoid

 

Secondary Muscles Hit — Calves, abs, triceps

 

When it comes to serious muscle growth, four factors are absolutely key to avoid the horrendous growth plateau:

  1. Intensity
  2. Difficulty
  3. Variety
  4. Creativity

BOSU ball shoulder presses wrap all four aspects into one explosive, powerful, fat-blasting package. Not only do they develop broad, well-defined shoulders at an unparalleled level, but they simultaneously build core stability and balance, amp up fat loss, and stimulate the calves in a completely fresh way.

These are incredibly difficult and you WILL sweat. You WILL be sore. You WILL get delicious results. Yum.

See the video below from Exercise.com for the full 101 on how to do a BOSU ball shoulder press. Three quick tips:

  1. Do these on the black side–that’s with the blue side facing down.
  2. Focus. Concentration is absolutely key. Tighten your core, stabilize your body, maintain good posture, and slowly press the dumbbells overhead.
  3. Lower the dumbbells until your triceps are parallel with the ground. Any lower and it puts a TON of unnecessary stress on the rotator cuff…and that’s how you tear a muscle.
