About the Shoulder Press Workout
Set up correctly, a pillar shoulder press workout is an awesome shoulder strength training workout
Not only is it shoulder joint friendly, but the shoulder press workout also creates ab stabilization and scapular stabilization at the same time. Both scapular and abdominal stabilization are often weak links in the overhead pressing movement. This leads to the shoulder, specifically the rotator cuff, becoming overused or injured.
Training overhead pressing in a plank position, automatically forces the scapula and abs to stabilize. Band resistance will be low but no worries. You will still get a great workout that will be very shoulder friendly.
