Shoulder Press/ Overhead Press

The dumbbell military press (also overhead press or shoulder press) is one of the best shoulder strengthening exercises.

Front Raises, Lateral Raises, and Reverse Flyes are also good dumbbell shoulder exercises.

Here are the instructions for the Dumbbell Overhead Press.

Shoulder Exercises: Overhead Military Dumbbell Press

Starting Position: Begin seated with your feet firmly on the floor. Hold the dumbbells at shoulder height with your palms facing forwards.

Form: Exhale and press the dumbbells over your head. Hold for a brief second at the top and then slowly lower to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Be mindful of your lower back position. As you press overhead, your back will have the tendency to arch. Keep you core muscles engaged so that you maintain good posture.
