The Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press is a great alternative to the Seated Barbell Shoulder Press. Like the barbell counterpart, the seated dumbbell shoulder press is a great exercise for developing size and strength in the shoulder area. The shoulder joint and muscle is a small body part that is involved in performing all strength exercise for the upper body.
Doing this exercise will also call on the stabilising muscles in the back, shoulders, and trapezius. Another great thing about the seated dumbbell shoulder press is that the movement has a greater range of motion than the seated barbell shoulder press.
Because you have to move two separate dumbbells, it forces your mind to become more focused using the correct technique. To do this exercise properly, it is also important to have strength, flexibility and mobility in the shoulder and thoracic area.
