Dumbbell Shoulder Press for Men
Dumbbell Shoulder Press
- Stand holding a pair of dumbbells just outside your shoulders, with your arms bent and palms facing each other. Set your feet shoulderwidth apart, and slightly bend your knees.
- Press the weights upward until your arms are completely straight. Slowly lower the dumbbells back to the starting position.
Tip Make sure to push the dumbbells in a straight line, rather than pushing them up and toward each other as many people do--a habit that increases the risk for shoulder injuries.
