Primary Muscles Trained:  Triceps
Secondary Muscles Trained:  Deltoids
Instructions: 
Sit on the end of a flat bench with the dumbbells resting on their ends on your knees. Roll your body back onto the bench, which should enable you to comfortably move the dumbbells to a point directly above you shoulder joints.
 
Your hands should be about 3-4 inches wider than shoulder width, with your palms facing each other.
 
Lower the weights, with your upper arms moving directly out to the sides, to a point as low as possible without any discomfort and with your hands aligned with the center of your chest.
 
Press the dumbbells upward toward the center of your body. Do not allow the dumbbells to touch and do not lock your elbows at the top.
