Seated Military Press

Sit on a military bench with a barbell at chest level. Take a slightly wider than shoulder-width grip, with your palms facing away from your body. Keeping your core tight, push the bar straight up, over your head, until your arms are fully extended. Then lower the bar back down to your chest.
