Dumbbell Shoulder Press Exercise
The dumbbell Comes through again. Kind of makes me wonder why they're called "Dumb" bells... In any event, exercising with them can be a great way to build strength. And shoulders are one of our most over looked - and sometimes over WORKED (as in desk type work) areas.
The seated dumbbell shoulder press is a great exercise to do with your dumbbells. It is less likely to cause injury than a similar procedure with a longer barbell or with other tools.
Finally, you can modify this exercise itself to make it more or less difficult, depending upon your abilities and how much you wish to push yourself.
How to perform The Dumbbell Shoulder Press Exercise:
- Grab a pair of dumbbells and sit on a bench.
- Hold the dumbbells at the sides of your shoulders, with your arms bent and palms facing each other.
- Push the weights straight overhead, pause, and then slowly lower them.
