Shoulder Press and deltoid action

Post by aa2001 » Fri Apr 16, 2010 2:06 am

Hi
Why the anterior deltoid is the main muscle in 'shoulder press'?
In which book/website can i find relevant article/research about it?

Thank's
Gal

That is because it is a pressing exercise. Any pressing is done mostly with the anterior deltoid. Whenever you push the way you are pointing your hands it is mostly anterior delts. Either type of flexion articulation uses anterior delts primarily.
