Dumbbell Squat-Shoulder Press

Dumbbell Squat-Shoulder Press is an advanced level full body exercise. Start by bringing both dumbbells up to your shoulder so that one end is resting on your shoulder. Slowly lower to the bottom of the squat while keeping keep your elbows in. Because you are holding the dumbbells up by your shoulder you will be incorporating more core so make sure to tilt your torso forward a few more degrees to compensate. Make sure to keep your back straight, chest up and hips back as you lower to the bottom of the squat.

Once you’ve reached the bottom of the squat, slowly rise back up while simultaneously pressing the shoulders up over your head. As you press up keep your elbows in so that the dumbbells are slightly in front of you once your arms are fully extended. From the top of the exercise slowly lower your arms back down and simultaneously lower into a squat. Be sure to keep your elbows and bring the dumbbells back to the top of your shoulders.
