Prone Shoulder Press

Prone Shoulder Press strengthen the muscles of the upper back. Prone Shoulder Presses are an intermediate posture exercise for preventing kyphotic (rounded) upper back posture. The rear deltoids help to hold the arms back during the overhead press. The lower trapezius and thoracic extensors help lift the chest or sternum up, whilst the external rotator cuffs keep the forearms parallel to the ground during the pull back phase

This exercise may be difficult to perform if you a large kyphotic or rounded upper back posture. If this is the case begin with a stretching and mobility program first and use the prone cobra extentions until the overhead movement can be achieved
