How to: Single-Arm Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Primary Muscles Used:Shoulders, Arms, Anterior Deltoid, Lateral Deltoid, Triceps
Exercise Families:Vertical Push
- Hold a dumbbell in your right hand at shoulder height, with an overhand grip (palm facing away from your body). Place your left hand on your hip and plant both feet on the floor hip-width apart. This is your starting position.
- Inhale and brace your core. Exhale and using the muscles in both your shoulder and arm, extend your right elbow and press the dumbbell above your head - ensure that your arm is in line with your right ear. Avoid “shrugging” by drawing your shoulder blades down and back.
- Inhale as you bend your elbow to lower the dumbbell back to the starting position. You should feel the weight going through your shoulder. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions or time on each side.
