Reverse grip dumbbell press seated with single arm


Exercise Benefits:

  • Perform this exercise at home or in the gym.
  • It will build strength in your shoulder muscles, and the reverse grip is a little bit different from the more common grip with your palms facing forward. This will keep things fresh, and provide different stimulation to your muscles.

How to Do the Exercise:

  • Sit on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Your arms will be hanging at your sides.
  • Tighten up your abdominals to support the back and spine, then do a bicep curl to bring the dumbbells up to shoulder height. Your wrists will be facing toward your body. This is the start position.
  • Press the dumbbells over your heard, while simultaneously rotating your wrists. This will result in your wrists facing forward at the top of the motion. Your arms should be fully extended, and your hands next to each other.
  • Lower the dumbbells to the original position and repeat the exercise until you’ve completed all your repetitions.
  • Again, it’s imperative that you do not arch your back during any of these exercises.
