Instructions

Preparation

Grasp dumbbells and sit upright on bench, feet under knees. Hold dumbbells close in front of chest. Let elbows point down and keep palms facing chest.

Execution

Press dumbbells up over head. Extend elbows and rotate shoulders and forearm to let palms face forward in upper position. Keep arms slightly flexed, return and repeat.

Variations / Comments

Arnold Press requires a greater range of motion than regular Shoulder Presses, offering a very effective training for the front and side shoulders. Its complexity makes Arnold Press the more difficult exercise, therefore, but unjustly, it isn't applied very often.
