Sitting on a bench that has an almost vertical back, straight spine, lean feet on floor. Hold a dumbbell in each hand in supination (palms facing body) in front of your face with slightly flexed elbows. Start movement, with elbows slightly flexed and extend them vertically making a wrist twist in the middle of the movement so the dumbbells meet above head and end in a prone grip (palms facing front). Lower in a controlled manner to starting position.
Basic Muscles Explanation
The deltoid is a three headed muscle that covers all the shoulder articulation and gives it a rounded and wide appearance. The medial and anterior deltoids are the main muscles involved in this movement. When they are well defined we can see the three divisions of the deltoids. In the elbow articulation, it is the brachial triceps that is wholly compromised. It is a three headed muscle that ocupies all the posterior part of the arm.
Muscles & Joint Actions
In the articular abduction of the shoulder, the arm goes from the horizontal to the floor position to a vertical position when the arm is extended. The deltoid muscles are involved in the rotation of the scapula that takes place when arm is elevated vertically. When the forearm separates from the arm, the extension is produced in the elbow articulation.
Press or push movements are one of the best exercises for developing the complete deltoid. Also, elevating the arms at the sides and above the head is important in many sports, like machine gymnastics and swimming. This movement is also present in raquet sports, volleyball and basketball when elevating arms in a position to throw or hit.
