Purpose of Exercise: To train the front and side deltoids. This exercise may seem to be similar to barbell presses but there are important differences, the most important being the greater range of motion you get using the dumbbells.
Hold one dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height. Elbows out to the sides, palms facing forward. Lift the dumbbells straight up until they touch at the top, and then lower them again as low as possible.
