DESCRIPTION

If you are just starting out, make sure your shoulders are warmed up. A good warm-up could include something as simple as using the dumbbells for the first set of an exercise. Weights for these exercises should be light because the delts are rather small muscles. One of the best shoulder workout is the overhead dumbbell press. You can do this either standing up or sitting down. The best way is to do it standing because it will work on your core muscles, but today we will focus on the sitting overhead dumbbell press. It too can help develop your shoulder muscles.

2. Shoulder Workout Each shoulder has a deltoid muscle.The deltoid is made up of 3 parts.The anterior (front) deltoid helps us to raise the arm upward in front of the body.The medial (middle) deltoid raises the arm upward to the side.The posterior (back) deltoid helps us to raise the arm upward behind the body. If you are just starting out, make sure your shoulders are warmed up.A good warm-up could include something as simple as using the dumbbells for the first set of an exercise.Weights for these exercises should be light because the deltoids are rather small muscles. 3. Shoulder Workout One of the best shoulder workout is the overhead dumbbell press.You can do this either standing up or sitting down. The best way is to do it standing because it will work on your core muscles, but today we will focus on the sitting overhead dumbbell press. It too can help develop your shoulder muscles The overhead dumbbell press is a shoulder workout routine that effectively strengthens the entire deltoid (anterior, medial, and posterior).These are done usually using an adjustable incline bench set to just under 90 degrees. Using 2 dumbbells, with your palms in a forward grip, start with the dumbbells at shoulder level, then press them up overhead in an arc. Do not click them at the top nor should you lock your elbows.This will help you to maintain tension on the deltoids. Next, lower slowly then repeat. 4. Shoulder Workout One trick you can use when doing the dumbbell shoulder press to help increase the tension in the deltoids: While pressing the dumbbells, keep your hands tilted down towards your head so that your pinkies are higher than your thumbs. This will mean tipping the dumbbells slightly down and in towards your head as if you were pouring water onto yourself. This position forces the tension on the shoulder muscles. 5.
