This is Stephany with Elevate Fitness, and today we're going to do some dumbbell lifting exercises. Now the reason why dumbbell lifting exercises can be beneficial for you is because it isolates the specific muscle that you are focusing on whenever you are doing the lifting motion. So we're going to do four different muscle groups today. The first dumbbell lifting exercise that we're going to do is going to be a bicep curl. Now you can do this movement either sitting or standing. We're going to do it sitting in this case and you always want to make sure that you draw your stomach into the spine so that you keep a neutral position on the spine, you roll your shoulders back and you keep your chest upright and you can either do a hammer curl or a regular curl but the motion is just lifting, bending at the elbows and then doing a full extension back down. This first dumbbell lifting exercise is called a bicep curl. Now the second one that we're going to do is going to be a shoulder press. With the shoulder press you want to start, you have to lift the weight over your shoulders and you are going to move up, bringing them back down, bending at the elbow and then doing a full extension of the arm, lifting the weight overhead. Another dumbbell lifting exercise that you can do is a tricep press. What you want to do is you want to take the dumbbell, hold it with both hands, bring it overhead and again we're going to bend at the elbows, 90 degrees and then bring the weight back up overhead and this is working out your tricep muscle. Again this dumbbell lifting exercise is called a tricep press. And the last one that we're going to do is a dumbbell chest press. Keep it right at the chest line and this particular exercise is called a chest press. This is Stephany with Elevate Fitness and we just did some dumbbell lifting exercises, get lifted.
