IT WORKS “EVERYTHING ABOVE THE WAIST” says Lauren Mazzo in her shape.com piece that describes just one exercise. For those who have yet to add upper body strength work to their training regimen, the dumbbell overhead press can be an easy beginning. To overcome inertia that may be keeping you from picking up a pair of weights, promise yourself that the only effort to be made is just this one exercise.
The article includes a video that demonstrates the exercise's simplicity and the muscles targeted. It is a relatively uncomplicated movement that doesn't take much thought, so I love it.
Master this one move, perform it at least once a week, preferably two to three times, and notice the gains in strength. Before long you’ll be searching for another exercise, possibly to improve lower body power, then another to make up a brief routine.
And you will be on the way to loving your stronger self!
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
