How to perform?

The Alternated Dumbbell Shoulder Press is a compound exercise that targets the shoulders (deltoids) and triceps while also working the upper back and core muscles. To perform the exercise, you will need a pair of dumbbells. Start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and holding a dumbbell in each hand at shoulder height. Next, press one weight overhead while keeping the other arm stationary. Lower the weight back down to shoulder height and then press the other weight overhead. Continue alternating arms, focusing on keeping your core engaged and not swaying from side to side. Make sure to keep your back straight and your elbows close to your body throughout the exercise.
