Video: How to do a Squat and Shoulder Press

This is the second in a series of videos with Ali, our personal trainer at The Sandpiper Club, Lancaster.

In this video we join Ali and his client, Sally who show us how to do the squat and shoulder press to try out next time we are at the gym.

If you would like a boost in your training and want to tone up but require a little guidance, then personal training is for you!

The Squat and Shoulder Press

This exercise targets your shoulders, back, quads, glutes, and hamstrings.

  1. Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, holding dumbbells at shoulder height with palms facing forward, wrists straight.
  2. Squat down, bending knees about 90 degrees; keep abs tight and body weight in heels without allowing knees to move past toes.
  3. Stand up, pushing powerfully through heels as you extend arms, bringing weights together above head.
  4. Hold and repeat.
