BMI Calculator

2. Overhead Shoulder Press

Start: Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, and hold a pair of dumbbells at your shoulders, elbows down, palms facing forward. Start the program with light weights — three to five pounds since you'll be doing many repetitions. Move: Press the weights straight overhead until your arms are fully extended. Slowly lower back to the starting position.
