Do a standing barbell shoulder press to build massive deltoids

The standing barbell press is one of the most often seen in movies and in TV shows. The classic chunkhead screaming out reps as he struggles, red-faced, to push that 100-pound dumbbell a few more inches into the air and into the finishing line.

While there are obviously lots of exercises you can do with weights, the standing barbell shoulder press is one of the most effective for muscle builders. It helps build massive deltoids for broad shoulders that will make you look manly and toned in any sleeveless shirt.

The standing barbell press is one of the most basic yet most effective shoulder exercises.

The nice thing about doing this exercise while standing is you can use a little bounce in your legs on the last two or three reps to initiate the movement.
