How To Perform Exercise

Targeting your deltoids, the dumbbell one arm shoulder press is a great exercise to help build strong shoulders.

Steps :

1.) Start off standing up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart, your abs tight and back straight.

2.) Grab a dumbbell and hold it at the side of your head, keeping the dumbbell inline with your ear.

3.) Once in position, slowly raise the dumbbell up by squeezing your deltoids and extending your arm out.

4.) Continue to raise the dumbbell up until your arm is fully extended and squeeze your shoulder muscles.

5.) Return back to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Don't lock your elbows at the top position of this exercise.
