The machine shoulder press primarily activates the deltoid muscles of the shoulder. As secondary and mover muscles, this exercise engages the pecs, triceps, and middle back muscles.
The shoulder press machine is an excellent exercise for building bulky shoulders.
It primarily works the deltoids while chipping in on other essential stabilizer muscles like the supraspinatus muscles, rotator cuff, traps, and rhomboid muscles.
Contrary to what many gym-goers think, the shoulder is not made up of a single muscle stretch. It involves the connection and dependence of various muscles in the shoulder to make arm movements. One of such muscles is the deltoid.The deltoid is the thick band of triangular muscle in the upper and most significant part of the body.
The deltoid aids the movement of the arm in all directions and helps in protecting and stabilizing the shoulder joint.
The deltoid is divided into three parts or heads, namely the anterior, medial, and posterior delts. Each deltoid is not only placed differently in the shoulder region but also carries out different functions.The anterior deltoid is so-called because it is located on the front part of the shoulder. It is connected to the clavicle and helps to move the hand forward. It is helpful in functional activities like reaching forward to take a cereal bowl off the kitchen counter.
The deltoid is also used in exercises in the gym that involve the execution of movements like deadlifts and bench presses.Together with the anterior delt, the medial deltoid is one of the primary muscles engaged during the shoulder machine press. The medial delt, also known as the side delt, is the middle head that helps to abduct the arm or move it out towards the side away from the body.
You make use of this muscle when you perform lateral raises.
The medial delt is the most substantial deltoid that provides size and girth. The shoulder press isolates this muscle, stimulating and breaking down its muscle fibers which contributes to bigger and stronger shoulders.
The posterior delt is targeted as a secondary muscle during the shoulder machine press. Compared to its predecessors, it gets only a lower level of stimulation. The posterior deltoid is also known as the rear deltoid, and it is located at the back of the shoulders. Its primary functions are the extension, external rotation, and horizontal abduction of the arms.
It works in sync with the anterior and medial delts to make arm movements and stabilize the shoulders during these movements.
The shoulder machine press engages and strengthens all three deltoid heads, improving your shoulder size, strength, stability, and mobility. It also extends these benefits to the triceps muscle of the arms.
The triceps or triceps brachii is the upper arm muscle that enables the arm to appear big at rest and even bigger when flexed. If you want bigger guns, it is often a good idea to start working on your triceps.Thankfully, the shoulder press activates the triceps as a primary muscle during the shoulder machine press.
