Seated Overhead Dumbbell Instructions:

  • Set up for the two arm dumbbell extension by sitting on a 90 degree bench holding a dumbbell above your head using both hands.
  • Be sure that the dumbbell is secure by holding it with both palms facing upward.
  • Keep your feet flat on the floor and your back straight. This is the starting position.
  • Keeping your head up and eyes facing forward, slowly lower the dumbbell behind your head as far as possible, moving only at your elbow joints.
  • Pause, and then slowly extend your arms back to the starting position, squeezing the triceps.

Repeat for desired reps.
