The Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press develops the entire shoulder muscle group. The dumbbells allow for a greater freedom of movement than the Barbell Shoulder Press. This greater freedom of movement also increases shoulder muscle activation and can also be very useful for people with shoulder injuries since the dumbells are far less stressful to the shoulder joint. Like the standing version, the Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Presse is a basic compound exercise (involves two or more joint movements) that require muscles on both sides of the shoulder joint to fire, but they primarily recruit the anterior (front) deltoids.
