Upright presses are my favorite exercise right now.

It has been a long time since I’ve been in a regular exercise routine, especially when it comes to bodybuilding of any kind. I found that push-ups and upright presses are my favorite exercises. That is very personal, of course because my body is different from yours, and it is also temporary, because as I progress I’m sure I will move on to another exercise to fill out my situation.

I have focused mostly on my core for the last few years because my back is totally fucked up, apparently, from what orthopedists have told me. So now I am this beetle body, with a massive, muscular trunk and these tiny (relatively speaking) limbs spraying out, grappling for some action. Instead, I would like to develop some muscular shoulders to develop a frame for my body that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also helps me with my shoulder problems. My shoulders are chronically overused and under-tended to. I would like to change that. So I am trying to beef up my shoulders and it looks like military presses, or upright presses, or whatever you want to call them, are one of the solutions, as well as the bench press I guess.

Does that resonate with anybody? I would like to know if you have any advice or anecdotes to share.
