Standing Dumbbell Press
- Standing with your feet shoulder width apart, take a dumbbell in each hand. Raise the dumbbells to head height, the elbows out and about 90 degrees. This will be your starting position.
- Maintaining strict technique with no leg drive or leaning back, extend through the elbow to raise the weights together directly above your head.
- Pause, and slowly return the weight to the starting position.
Dumbbell strength training offers added benefits over machines. The use of weights while sitting or standing requires strength in your legs and core to maintain balance throughout the exercise. The standing dumbbell shoulder press is great for focusing on the core of the deltoids, especially ifthe exercise is performed in conjunction with seated lateral raises. This exercise also strengthens the middle and the front of your shoulders, as well as the upper and middle back and abdominals.
