Sitting shoulder press
This exercise is the sitting shoulder press. As the name suggests, we’re going to strengthen your shoulders.
Start by sitting on a Swiss ball or a chair, so you’re nice and comfortable, knees bent at 90 degrees, tummy tight, sitting up straight. Now bring the dumbbells up so they’re in line with your ears, palms facing forward. And now just press them straight up. Always remember to breathe as you bring them down, and breathe out on the way up.
1. Sit on a swiss ball or a chair with your knees bent at right angles to the ground and feet flat in front. Start with your palms facing forward and dumbbells positioned just above your shoulders.
2. Exhale as you extend your arms above your head, bringing the dumbbells together in the centre. Inhale as you bring them back to the start position.
