2. Push Press
The push press is virtually identical to the overhead press, except you use your legs to generate extra force.
In a way, it’s like cheating because you use more momentum. But it also enables you to use heavier weights to overload your muscles.
3. Seated Shoulder Press
A seated shoulder press is another overhead press variation. However, this time the seated position eliminates momentum generated by your legs.
Therefore, the seated shoulder press is better for isolating the front delts than standing presses.
4. Behind the Neck Press
You can also perform the seated shoulder press by lowering the bar behind your head. With this variation, you isolate the front deltoid even more by reducing upper chest involvement.
But you must be careful and use proper form to prevent shoulder injury. And it’s a good idea to use a lighter weight than the front shoulder press.
5. Incline Bench Press
An incline press involves a bench set at a 30-60o angle. This upward angle places the load on your upper chest and anterior delts.
Also, the steeper the incline, the more you use your shoulders. So if you have an adjustable bench, set it at 45o or higher when targeting front delts.
6. Landmine Press
A landmine is an apparatus that anchors one end of a barbell on the floor and allows the other end to pivot. One exercise you can do with this equipment is the landmine press.
Start by holding the free end of the bar near your chest and pressing it up and away from your body. Additionally, you can do this exercise by standing or kneeling with two hands or one hand.
