The one shoulder move you should be doing

The twisting dumbbell shoulder press

Here’s why you need to do it!

This compound multi-joint movement targets the muscles of the shoulders, predominantly the anterior (front) deltoids, along with pressing muscles such as your triceps and rotator cuffs in your upper back.

The twisting motion also activates muscles in your core and hips, especially your obliques. This helps to strengthen muscles involved in rotational movements, which has beneficial functional benefits in everyday life and various sports.

Here’s how to do it

Stand upright with your feet placed shoulder-width apart. Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Position the dumbbells just outside of your shoulders with your elbows bent and your palms facing forwards.
