Standing palms-in shoulder press

The standing palms-in shoulder press is a dumbbell exercise targeting the shoulders. It can be performed in strength-focused rep ranges, such as 5-8 reps per set, or for higher reps to build muscle or for conditioning.


  1. The standing position encourages core strength and a neutral lower back position
  2. A neutral grip may be more shoulder-friendly than pressing with the palms facing forward
  3. Builds size and strength in the deltoids and triceps
