Standing Alternating Dumbbell Press

The alternating standing shoulder press with dumbbells mainly targets the delts, as well as the triceps secondarily. The alternating factor requires isometric holding of one side while working the other.


  1. Building size and strength of the shoulders as well as stability when alternating working arms
  2. Requires good shoulder and thoracic mobility in order to perform correctly
  3. The standing position works the core and ability to maintain a neutral back position
