Standing overhead press

Stand upright, holding a dumbbell overhead with both hands under the inner plate, using a diamond-shaped grip. With your elbows overhead, lower your forearms behind your upper arms by flexing your elbows. Keep elbows in tight towards the side of your head throughout the entire motion. Flex your wrists at the bottom of the movement to stop the dumbbell from hitting the back of your head. Raise the dumbbell back up to starting position. Repeat for required reps.
