Overhead Shoulder Press

This exercise targets the deltoid or shoulder muscles, while other muscles are also worked including your triceps and trapezius muscles. You can increase the workload for your muscles by increasing the weight in your dumbbells.

Step 1: Hold a dumbbell in each hand and raise to shoulder height. Rotate wrists so that the palms of your hands are facing forward. This is your starting position.
