- Sit on seat with back support just below shoulder height.
Position dumbbell over head with arm straight up or slightly
- Lower dumbbell behind neck or shoulder while maintaining
upper arm's vertical position throughout exercise. Extend arm
until straight. Return and repeat. Continue with opposite arm.
- Let dumbbell pull back arm slightly to maintain full shoulder
flexion. Keep elbow in so movement does not turn into overhead
press. Back support should not
be so high that it interferes with dumbbell being completely
lowered (i.e. full range of motion). See rear
view. Exercise may be performed on bench
without back support.
