Exercise of the Week : Seated Half-Press
Although the Seated Half-Press looks like a shoulder exercise, it’s actually for the lateral head of the triceps. And a new triceps movement is always welcome.
From the original article :
To perform the movement, put a bench in a power rack and set the pins just above head height. With the bar directly overhead, take a shoulder-width grip and point your elbows out to the sides. Press, pause at the bottom and repeat.
