Gene Sanders: Hi, my name is Gene Sanders. I am a professional certified trainer. I am going to be taking you through a Dumbbell Military Press routine you can do at home. The only things that you're going to need are the dumbbells and a Swiss ball. You will be sitting on the Swiss ball upright, and make sure you have good posture. Keep your abs nice and tight. Pick up the dumbbells; elevate them, so that your elbows are at 90 or right angle. From this position, go ahead and press straight up and then come right back down to starting position. You don't want to go too low because it will put too much pressure on your shoulder joint. So, when you bring your dumbbells down, make sure that your elbows and your arms are at 90, it's very important. Do 12-15 repetitions.
