Dumbbell Bicep-Shoulder Press (Seated)

Dumbbell Bicep-Shoulder Press (Seated) is an intermediate level upper body exercise. Because you are in a seated position you will have back support and more stability therefore, I recommend anyone who is new to fitness start with the seated press. With a dumbbell in each hand down by your side, curl them up to shoulder height while breathing out. Slowly press the dumbbells up and together in an upside-down V range of motion up over your head (I recommend not having the dumbbells touch as it can throw your balance off as well as drop dumbbell drop into your face or eyes). Be sure to breathe out as you press the dumbbells up. Once you have reached the top of the range of motion, slowly lower the dumbbells down to the top of the bicep curl then down to your sides in the start position. Make sure to breathe out as you lower the dumbbells from the top of the shoulder press. Be sure to keep your head back, chest up and back straight as you perform this exercise.
