    The high-performance shoulder press for effective shoulder training

    Shoulder presses are a classic in bodybuilding, considered one of the most effective exercises to achieve muscular shoulders.  However, their demanding nature means traditional dumbbell or barbell presses are not generally recommended for beginners.

    The eGym shoulder press machine makes this effective gym exercise accessible to everyone. Shoulder presses using this dedicated strength training machine are significantly easier than the free version using a barbell or dumbbell in a standing position. Thanks to the modern technology integrated in our shoulder press machine, training on this machine can be even more effective than conventional shoulder presses.

    Shoulder press machine: Important for the stability of your shoulder joints

    The shoulder press machine is primarily used to train the front and middle shoulder muscles – the anterior and lateral deltoid. Your lateral shoulder muscles are responsible for lifting your arms above shoulder level. Training the shoulder muscles improves the stability of your shoulder joint and enables better transmission of power from the arm to the body.

    Digital fitness technology for stronger shoulder muscles

    It wasn’t long ago that high-performance strength training on digital equipment was a luxury reserved exclusively for professional athletes. Thanks to our innovative fitness technology, this equipment is now making its way into gyms around the globe.

    The fully electronic shoulder press has various training methods that have been proven by sports science research to be the most effective for building muscle and strengthening the shoulders. Aside from the exceptional training efficiency, the eGym shoulder press is particularly good for facilitating safe training. The ergonomic design and automatic settings permit optimal biomechanics and ensure you can enjoy effective yet gentle deltoid strength training.

    Possible training goals for the eGym shoulder press

    • Athletics

    • Muscle building

    • General fitness

    • Body toning

    • Weight loss

    • Health

    In the process of developing a high-quality training concept, our sports science department created various training programs that allow you to align all your workouts – including your shoulder training – to your training goal. Depending on your goal, you will train in several coordinated phases using different methods.

    Our training includes an automatically periodized training plan, which makes sure you meet your training goal while taking your body and your strength potential into careful consideration. eGym puts the focus on you.

    How effective is training with a shoulder press?

    Shoulder presses definitely make sense because they provide such an effective workout. Anyone who lacks the necessary physical strength and stability to safely and properly perform shoulder presses using barbells or dumbbells will find professional training equipment such as the eGym shoulder press a sensible alternative means to perform this highly recommended exercise.

    When evaluating the eGym shoulder press, please note that it is not comparable to a normal mechanical shoulder machine. A free workout with exercises like the standing straight-bar military press may be more challenging in complexity and require more muscles throughout the body to stabilize yourself, but our shoulder press can be used for stronger and more varied muscle stimuli of the main target muscles, the front and side deltoids.

    The fully automatic shoulder press allows a maximum training weight of 150 kg. But that weight alone is not everything when it comes to achieving the greatest possible benefits from your training.

    eGym’s adaptive training allows you to continue training after muscle fatigue has set in thanks to continuous weight adjustment up to your maximum muscle capacity. This increases your strength and promotes the building of new muscle mass. You will rarely achieve such an intense muscle workout doing military presses.

    Proper exercise technique when using the shoulder press

    The eGym shoulder press machine makes shoulder presses simple and safe. It’s basically impossible to make serious mistakes – even if you’ve never been to a gym before

    Since the exercise is done in a sitting position, you don’t have to rely on great body tension and coordination as you do when performing conventional shoulder presses. However, even in this guided exercise, you should make sure that you perform the motion in a controlled manner.

    Mistakes such as pushing too quickly or moving the upper body or buttocks back and forth are usually the result of incorrect weight settings or a suboptimal sitting position. The settings on the eGym shoulder press are automatic and your movements are guided by a display, which means you should be able to perform the exercise correctly without any problems.

    To perform the exercise correctly, make sure that throughout the exercise you are leaning against the shoulder pad on the shoulder press with your back straight. If you suffer from shoulder problems, you can shift some of the load onto your triceps with a narrow, vertical grip.
