How to Do Dumbbell Squat Press on Half Foam Roller
The dumbbell squat press on a half foam roller should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.
If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the dumbbell squat press on a half foam roller.
Beginning Squat Shoulder Press
1. Center yourself on the foam roller so that the arches of your feet are in the center of the rollers.
2. Start with a dumbbell at shoulder height, palm facing forward.
3. Stabilize the spine by drawing the belly button in towards the spine and perform a pelvic floor contraction by tightening those muscles commonly used to stop the flow of urine.
Squat Shoulder Press Movement
1. Bring shoulder blades down and together, take a deep diaphragmatic breath, and keep the chest up looking straight ahead.
2. Begin the squat with triple flexion (at ankles, knees, and hips).
3. Squat back up to standing position, and perform a two arm shoulder press.
4. Bring the arm back down to shoulder height and repeat movement.
