Dumbbell or kettlebell shoulder press is a great exercise for building overall strength and size in your shoulders, as well as working your core and abs to hold a strong upright position throughout the exercise.
Using dumbbells or kettlebells to perform the shoulder press works the stabilizer muscles in your shoulders and upper arms, which helps with functional strength and helps to avoid injury.
It is preferable to use either dumbbells or kettlebells, rather than a barbell, as it gives you a broader flexibility of movement and is not so restrictive. Restriction of movement is harsh on your shoulder joint and can lead to injury.
You should keep your belly button pulled back to engage your underlying core muscles and brace your abs while you perform the exercise to hold yourself in a strong position with your spine in neutral alignment.
Take a look at our video tutorial where I guide you through the exercise and outline the main technique points of how to do a perfect dumbbell shoulder press.
If you need something to print off and take to the gym as a reminder, the step-by-step exercise technique is provided here for you:
How To Do A Dumbbell Shoulder Press – Step-by-Step Technique
Step 1: Stand in a strong athletic stance, with the dumbbells/kettlebells at the side of your feet, making sure your feet are just past shoulder-width apart, your back is in neutral alignment, and your core is tight.
Step 2: Bending your knees, and keeping your back straight, lower down to pick up the dumbbells/kettlebells. Stand back upright and curl the bells up, then twist your hands so your palms face outward and the bells rest on your shoulders.
Step 3: Breathe in, then as you breathe out, press the bells straight up and squeeze them into the center, above your head.
Step 4: Breathe in as you lower the bells back down to shoulder height.
Step 5: Complete the prescribed number of reps, then bending your knees and keeping your back straight, lower the bells back to the floor.
** Pro Tip: We recommend starting 3 sets of 15-20 reps.**
