Single-arm Dumbbell Shoulder Press — Standing

Muscle Groups
  • Shoulders
  • Deltoid strength
  • Triceps strength


The single arm dumbbell press standing is a good way to strengthen your shoulder and core at the same time. At the same time it gets the whole body to work together; the legs and core support while the shoulder moves the weight. This is a good alternative to the barbell military press. This exercise can also be done with a kettlebell.


  • Standing tall, hold the dumbbell in one hand at shoulder level, palm forward.
  • Keep your back straight and your chest up at all time.
  • Press the dumbbell up until your arm is straight and the elbow is in line with your ear, then return to shoulder level.


  • Excessive arching of the back
  • Pressing the dumbbells too far in front of the head, instead of directly overhead
  • Torso bending to the side
