    Muscles worked: Deltoids

    Instructions:
    Sitting on a the edge of a bench. Grasp a set of dumbbells and rest them on your thighs. If the weight is too heavy, kick your legs up one at a time to help get the weight up to your shoulders. With your palms facing out to the front of you, press the weights up directly upward from your shoulders to straight arm's length. Lower them back down to the point where the edges of the dumbbells touch your side deltoids and repeat. Be sure to keep the weights moving in a completely vertical plane with no back and forth motion.
    Note Keep your back straight throughout the entire movement. You can also do this exercise in a standing position. Standing will allow you to use more weight. Sitting makes the movement more strict, making it harder to press heavier weight.
    Dont's:
    Don't bounce the weight off the tops of your shoulders. Use a slow controlled movement. Don't let your torso lean backwards or forwards during the movement. Keep your back straight throughout the exercise.

    Alternate exercises: Barbell shoulder presses, Smithmachine shoulder presses,
