Shoulder Press, Dumbbell, Alternating

Type: Shoulder
The military shoulder press is an effective exercise for developing the deltoids, and is performed by pressing overhead, extending the arms. Performing the exercise whilst standing places more emphasis on the core as core strength and stability is vital for developing good technique. Alternating the movement also encourages good technique and increases the time under tension. Below you'll find a video guide and step by step instructions that describes the correct technique for the dumbbell alternating shoulder press exercise.
