Seated Arnold Press

Step 1

Set an incline bench to an 85-degree incline. Holding two dumbbells with an underhand grip (palms facing towards your body) directly in front of your chest, sit down on the bench and plant your feet on the floor slightly further than shoulder-width apart. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Exhale. Using the muscles in both your shoulders and arms, extend your elbows to press the dumbbells above your head, rotating your wrists outwards to turn your palms away from your body. Your arms should be in line with your ears on either side of your head.

Step 3

Inhale. Once your arms are fully extended, bend your elbows to lower the dumbbells into your chest and rotate your wrists inwards to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
