Standing Dumbbell Press

Starting Position: Grab a pair of dumbbells and raise them above your head with your back straight and legs shoulder width apart. Hold the dumbbells in each hand right below shoulder level with palms facing forward.

Performing the exercise: Push the dumbbells up, extending your arms over head, without locking your elbows. Slowly lower the weight back to starting position.


  • Do not use leg drive to push the weight up
  • Keep your elbows out and do not let them stray inward
