Alternating dumb-bell shoulder press

Alternating dumb-bell shoulder press

Focus on one side of your body at a time to make each shoulder work as hard as possible.

  • Start with one dumb-bell raised and one at shoulder level.
  • Stand with your torso upright, core braced and feet apart, looking forward.
  • As you lower one dumbbell, raise the other.
  • Use your core muscles to stabilise the movement - don't rock from side to side.
  • Keep your hips aligned with your torso.
