Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press
This is a big surprise PR (Personal Record) for me! I used to be unable to even get 70lbs into position - I'd kick them to my shoulders and they'd go nowhere! Now, I got these 75lbs up for three reps. Utter surprise, but glad to see the progress!
This is a tremendous Shoulder and upper chest builder. The difficulty for progressing this lift comes from getting it into position - from your lap to your shoulders.
Don't just try to lift it to your shoulders, that will drain your energy! Instead place them on top of your knees and kick your legs up one at a time, getting the weight as close to your center of gravity as possible. Once one is in place, kick the other up. At first try it slow, then once you have some confidence, do it quickly and efficiently.
