4. Try to keep your head in a neutral position.

Throughout the exercise, maintain a neutral position with your eyes facing forward to avoid any injuries and straining your neck.

5. Go with lightweight, high reps.

While doing the French press workout, there will be a lot of stains on your shoulders, elbows, and wrists. So if you are doing the exercise in the wrong way, there is a high chance of getting an injury.

So never use a weight that is too heavy for you. Aside from it is pretty close to your head. There is a potential that it can pull your arms backward. To reduce the possibility of getting an injury, go for the lightweights, high reps as a start off, and work your way up. When doing this French press exercise, aim for 10-12 reps per set regardless of whether you are using a dumbbell, barbell, or EZ bar.
