Shoulder Workout: Seated Dumbbell Press
Seated dumbbell presses are excellent shoulder exercises as they target all three sections of your deltoid muscle. The deltoid, often referred to as "delts", is a triangular muscle that wraps around the top section of your shoulders. These are the muscles responsible for raising your arms to the side, forward and backwards, as well as assist in the rotation of your shoulders.
To perform this move:
REMEMBER: In this exercise it is easy for your lower back to arch; do not allow this to happen. Keep your back straight at all times. Whilst performing this move, look forward with your chin up and keep your shoulders squared to avoid rounding your back forward.
This move can be performed either seated or standing and arms may also be alternated to hold the dumbbell with palms facing each other.
