The push press targets all your shoulder muscles and even works your legs a bit.

Start with your feet hip-width apart, and rest the dumbbells on the fronts of your shoulders.

Make sure you have a firm grasp on the handles.

Take a small breath and dip slightly by bending your knees, keeping your torso upright and your head up.

Immediately reverse the movement, using your legs to drive the dumbbells off of your shoulders. Use this momentum to press the dumbbells overhead.

This should be done explosively but under control.

Pause for a moment in the top position, and then lower the dumbbells back to your shoulders. Repeat.
