It is performed back just above the trap muscle. Other muscles worked are the triceps.

This Bodybuilding shoulder exercise is usually executed by placing a loaded barbell onto your upper back, but if you prefer, you can lift weights to the front.

Your feet are both planted firmly on the floor. Lift the weight off the rack, and then press the bar directly over your head in a vertical line.
