The Shoulder Press
The shoulder press is excellent for developing upper body strength and developing the power zone. The power zone includes the hip flexors, hip extensors, spinal erectors, and quadriceps. Developing power from the core to these extremities (the power zone) is a fundamental skill needed for athletic success.
A common fault I see with the shoulder press is not fully extending the elbows out at the top and the arms not fully pressing out.
