Half-Kneeling Dumbbell Shoulder Press

The single-arm half-kneeling shoulder press primarily builds the front head of the deltoid, but the side head also must pitch in to move the load. The half-kneeling position is an usual but effective stance.


  1. Working one shoulder at a time allows for greater focus
  2. More natural range of motion vs. the barbell version lowers injury risk
  3. Core needs to work to stabilize body under an asymmetrical load
