You may use heavier weights performing the push press than when performing the exercise with strict form.
- Start with the dumbbells at your shoulders.
- Dip down slightly and use your legs to help drive the dumbbells overhead.
- Rotate 90 degrees to the left as you press.
- Lower the dumbbells back to your shoulders and repeat, rotating to the right.
- Bad posture.
- Pushing the dumbbells too far out to the side or out in front of you.
