The standing barbell shoulder press is an excellent exercise. Improving your strength on it will lead to better shoulder development and pressing strength.
But, it is also a difficult exercise to master and strengthen.
You go in, day after day, week after week and building strength feels like something impossible.
And no matter how hard you try, the annoying plateau doesn’t go away. But let’s face it: the lack of progress isn’t due to a lack of hard work.
Building strength is a lot of work.
It takes discipline.
It takes resolve and it also takes continuous hard effort applied to the right things.
Sure, you can lift heavy week after week and make some progress. But this is one side of the whole story.
In fact, there is a whole other aspect of building strength that you need to know about.
And once you do, you will not only lift the numbers you want but you’ll also find that building strength is not that complicated of a process. In fact, it’s pretty straightforward.
All you need to do is devote yourself and get to work.
