"Seated dumbbell shoulder overhead press exercise is the basic exercise to build shoulder muscles, particularly in the overall roundness and mass of shoulders. It works all the three heads of shoulder muscles." Yang says. "Unfortunately, too many people use too much weight or have poor weightlifting skills that ended up injuring their shoulder joint or rotator cuff muscles. The rehab takes a long time to recover, if ever."
Yang adds, "shoulder girdle includes many joints that move in different directions, angles and planes. Shoulder joints are very versatile yet also very fragile. We have to take good care of them."
For both men and women alike, having well sculpted and toned shoulder muscles adds to the appealing upper body V-taper shape. With balanced and complemented triceps and biceps muscles, it really completes the upper body muscle building.
There are two modified variations to seated dumbbell shoulder press exercise if one has prior shoulder joint problems or wants to avoid them. The first modification is to do the dumbbell press in partial range by lowering the weight until feeling discomfort or up to where upper arms are parallel to the floor.
The second modification is to do the dumbbell press by turning the elbows facing front in the sagittal plane. This would help alleviate stress on shoulder joint.
"One should have a good general warmup before weightlifting. Then perform joint and muscle-specific warmup by doing the same movement using bodyweight or very low weight. Again, everyone should learn the basic weighlifting skills properly, correctly and safely, preferrably from an experienced certified personal trainer. It saves you a lot of more money, medical bills, and rehab time in the long run," Yang says.
