1. Shoulder Press
This beginner level move targets your shoulders and triceps. According to Fitness, the exercise is simple. Stand up straight with your feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a 3 to 5 pound dumbbell in each hand. Next, bend your elbows to bring your hands to shoulder level, palms facing forward. Push up, extending the weights straight overhead while keeping shoulders down.
Once you’ve fully extended, slowly lower the weights back to the shoulder. Complete 20 reps.
