All you need is 1 dumbbell to work your shoulders & arms!

Grab a mat and dumbbell for 3 exercises focusing on your shoulders, arms and core.

Weight should be in opposite hand of forward knee. Press weight straight over head, keeping palm facing in & arm stops when next to ear.

Right arm - 10 reps, Left arm - 10 reps

Forward Raise -

Holding the dumbbell with one hand held low in front of the body. Raise the dumbbell up to shoulder height, pause, lower slowly.

Proper form tips:

Tall posture

Shoulders relaxed

Abdominals contracted (picture "zipping up" your abs - bringing your navel up and toward your spine)

Don't let your back arch

When kneeling make sure your knees are under your hips, not together

Complete 3 rounds, 8-12 reps each.

Add this tri-set to your upper body day or your push day.
