    Standing Shoulder Press vs Sitting

    I like to mix it up and do standing shoulder presses about every 3rd shoulder workout sometime BB and also single arm dummies "now"
    I heard that doing standing over seated can widen the waist over time, putting unwanted size on your mid section. Is there any truth in this??

    I do train a bit lighter with standing if that makes a dif???

    Hey, did a quick search for you, I wouldn't worry about putting too much size on your mid-section, standing shoulder presses will work your lower back/core more, which is a good thing.

    I agree with Joe, it will place more emphasis on the core in terms of strengthening and stabilizing but I would not worry about getting too wide in the mid-section as a result.

    The exercises that are most notorious for putting excess size on your midsection are knife and fork curls. Also doughnut, beer, and soda curls. And it is all extra fat.

    Stop worrying and do the lifts that you like.

    It's true. Freeweight moves that require a lot of actual strength will give you a thick, blocky core. It depends how serious you are about doing them, but if you hit it pretty hard you'll get swole abs and obliques. It doesn't make a difference if you work on your lats a lot, you'll still have a taper anyway.
