Dumbbell Shoulder Press

Hold a weight in each hand, palms facing forwards, with your arms bent at a 90- degree angle and your elbows out to the sides at shoulder level. Lift the the weights, raising your arms above your head until your arms are almost straight, but keep your elbows slightly bent at the top of the movement. Lower the dumbbells in a slow, controlled manner back to the starting position. Do not lock your elbows. Keep your spine in a straight line. Look forward with your chin up and square your shoulders.

Target: Upper

Equipment Needed: dumbbells
