Dumbbell Shoulder Press Exercise My philosophy is that it should be quality over numbers. Hi this is Toby from Kansas and today we are going to be racking on the Dumbbell Shoulder Press. I don’t belive that just because you have a certain amount of weight on top of you that you’re doing the edge of this correctly. That most of time when you go to a gym, you’ll see someone with like is quarter about of weight, like wow you must be really strong. And then like track him up five years later he probably has a worst back ever. So it’s all about technique that’s what I stand for. The Dumbbell Shoulder Press is one of the best exercises that you can do to get more around in sleek and sexy shoulders. Nothing can come from building something up from bad habits according to how that much you know the foundations such as like the shoulder press. If you can like eventually get to something like is more functional of like a unilateral having at one side, that way you’re working to this side core and it’s a little bit more difficult. But I mean you have to have that foundation of knowing what to do correctly before you can go build up. To start this exercise; all you have to do is grab two dumbbells with an overhand grip. Bring the weight so that they’re about shoulder width apart as well as inline with your jaw. Simply what you want to do, press it straight up above your head, try not to clink the weights because clinking the weights basically takes all the tension away form the shoulder muscles which is not what we want to do. It’s important to me for us to do it correctly because your shoulders are like; you’re least stable muscle in your entire body. Easily bring it back down to the start position. Just going to repeat, perfect. Congratulations you just finished shoulder press. I’m Toby and I’ll see you next time on Studio for fitness.
