Hi, I'm Brandon Snider, and I'm here today at the Down Town Athletic Club in Little Rock, Arkansas. And today, I'm going to do a incline dumbbell shoulder press using dumbbells. And what we are going to do is simply lie back holding in your abs. Going to bring your elbows out to the side. You want your upper arms parallel with the floor. Going to exhale, press up, inhale around back down. Exhale press up. Okay, another thing you want to keep in mind is you want to make sure that your joints are stacked, meaning you want your wrists stacked with your elbows the entire time. It's very easy to let the wrists fall back, like so. So, you want to keep them straight up. You want to bring your elbow just down to where your upper arm is parallel with the floor. The incline dumbbell press is a great exercise to work the front of the shoulder. A great complimentary exercise to work the top and the back of the shoulder as a standing dumbbell press and a dumbbell bent over row.
