Shoulder press

  • Sit/stand with feet shoulder width apart and core activated.
  • Hold a light dumbbell in each hand with your arms out to the side, elbows tucked in and weights resting just above your shoulders.
  • Press up through your shoulders, lifting the dumbbells straight up above your shoulders. Arms should be extended with a slight bend in the elbow at the top of the shoulder press.
  • To return, gently lower the weight back down to shoulder height.
  • Repeat 10-15 reps x 2 sets
