Lateral StepUp Shoulder Press

The lateral step-up with shoulder press is a great functional combination exercise for anyone looking to get as much work done as possible during a single exercise. The shoulder press can be performed along with front step-ups as well. Adding a lateral component to the step-up will help you develop strength in the muscles that act and stabilize in the frontal plane. Since exercises which occur in the frontal plane are often neglected in training programs the lateral stepup shoulder press is a welcome addition to any functional training programs designed for all around weight loss, muscle toning or general conditioning.
