Getting Started


  • 1

    Start by sitting on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder level, palms facing each other.

  • 2

    Hold the dumbbells together in the center with a strong grip.

  • 3

    With your elbows tucked in, press the dumbbells up over your head.

  • 4

    Pause for a moment when your dumbbells are at the top position, then lower them back to the starting position.

  • 5

    Repeat for the desired number of reps.

  • 6

    Remember to keep your core engaged and your shoulders down and back throughout the exercise.

  • 7

    Make sure to keep the dumbbells close to each other and to use your chest muscles to press the dumbbells up, not your triceps.

  • 8

    Breathe in as you press the dumbbells up and out as you lower them.
