Muscle Group: Shoulders
Another bread and butter shoulder exercise. You will be building your entire shoulder complex. The neutral grip is great for anyone who has had shoulder injuries before and will allow you to go heavy again.
Take a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height, elbows should be slightly in and your palms should be facing each other.
Press the dumbbells straight up. Remember at the top that you are not touching the dumbbells together. This exercise remains neutral. Now, lower the dumbbells again to the starting position and feel a great stretch in your shoulders. As a variation, you may perform these standing.
