The Standing Military Press is an excellent way to develop your deltoid muscles which are situated around the shoulder blade area. This particular exercise makes use of a barbell which creates maximum stress on the deltoid muscles thereby developing them. Using a grip with your knuckles facing upwards bend your elbows and rest the barbell in line with your shoulders. The grip on each side of the barbell will be narrower than you would normally use. Now simply extend your elbows upwards as far as possible, maintaining the top position for a few seconds, and then simply bring the barbell back down to the starting position. This exercise is great for your deltoid muscles because it ensures that pressure is always maintained on the elbow area which brings in the deltoids.
