#2 Shoulder Press
As the name says, the shoulder press is a wonderful exercise to build all the three heads of the deltoid muscles. Additionally, the exercise activates the biceps and forearms as well.
Step 1: Sit on a flat bench with back support and hold dumbbells in both the hands. Position the arms overhead in a fully extended position. Ensure that the palms are facing away from the body throughout the duration of the exercise.
Step 2: Without moving the upper body, gradually lower the dumbbells until they are in line with the head. In this position, the upper arms must be perpendicular to the torso, and the forearms must make a 90-degree angle with the upper arms.
Step 3: Hold for a moment and return to the initial position.
Perform the exercise for the recommended number of times.
Important tip: Perform the standing version of this exercise for added resistance and improved customisability. However, people with lower back problems must exercise caution while performing this exercise.
