ALTERNATING DUMBBELL OVERHEAD PRESS

ALTERNATING DUMBBELL OVERHEAD PRESS

Preparation:
Sit on a bench with a low back support. Sit with feet flat on the floor and the lower back firmly against the back support. Pick up a pair of dumbbells, and hold them at shoulder height, elbows out completely to the sides and palms facing forward.

Execution:
Press one dumbbell overhead until arm is fully extended overhead. Now, slowly lower the dumbbell, keeping the weight balanced over your elbow. Stop when your elbow is just below parallel with your shoulder joints (fists at the same height as ear lobs). Repeat with your other arm. Remember to keep the non-moving arm stationary with tension on it. No resting it.

Comments:
Do not allow your hips to move forward during the lift. Do not allow tension off the resting arm (non-moving arm).
