[email protected] Water Exercise #9: Overhead Shoulder Press

Overhead Shoulder Press 

In this video, certified fitness trainer Alex Isaly shows you how to do an overhead shoulder press with resistance bands. You use your full body, but this exercise targets your shoulder muscles.  

Special Equipment: Resistance bands  

Level: Moderate to Advanced  

Reps: 30 seconds active, 15-second recovery for 3-4 rounds 

This is an upper body exercise that focuses on the shoulders called an Overhead Shoulder Press. To perform the exercise you will only need resistance bands. Begin by facing the swim current with your feet in a lunge position, knees are slightly bent, and the chest is slightly forward creating a nice long spine. Hold the resistance bands at shoulder height. Make sure that you are far enough away from the anchor so there is no slack in the resistance bands. Begin the exercise by pressing the resistance bands up and away from the body. Return the movement back to starting position. For beginners, start with a slow tempo and not so close to the swim current. The faster you go or the further you step towards the swim current, the greater the demand on the working muscles. Perform this exercise for 30 seconds and recover for 15 to 20 seconds, or longer if needed. Perform a total of 3 to 4 rounds for optimal results.
