Target and strengthen your arms with the seated triceps dumbbell press.

 

The Move: Seated Triceps Dumbbell Press

Why: Doing seated dumbbell triceps presses allows you to concentrate specifically on strengthening. Isolated tricep exercises build muscle.

How: Sit down on a bench and grasp a dumbbell with both hands and hold it overhead at arms length. Keeping your upper arms close to your head (elbows in) and perpendicular to the floor, lower the resistance behind your head until your forearms touch your biceps. Go back to the starting position by using the triceps to raise the dumbbell. Breathe out as you perform this step.

Nail it: The upper arm should remain stationary and only the forearm should move during exercise. Breathe in as you perform this step. Keep good posture throughout exercise with core engaged and shoulders down and back away from neck.
