Hi, I'm Emily Jones, Fitness Expert and Competitor here at Camp Hero Fitness in Southlake, Texas. Now, I'm going to be demonstrating to you a single overhead dumbbell raise. One of the benefits of doing a single arm dumbbell raise is that we're going to be isolating our tricep on each side, concentrating on the muscle being used. You're going to choose a dumbbell that's moderately in weight. You're going to put it above your head, arm is straight, you're going to bend at your elbow, 90-degree angle where it's slightly behind your elbow. You're going to raise it up, straightening your arm. You're just going to be bending at your elbow, keeping your back straight, chest up and concentrating on your breathing. You should feel it in your tricep with each motion; isolating that muscle group being trained. Once you're done with about 12 to 15 reps, we'll switch it to the left. And again, I'm Emily Jones, Fitness Expert and Competitor and I just demonstrated to you what a single overhead dumbbell raise is. Have a great day.
