The benefits of the seated half arnold press

  1. The seated half Arnold press focuses on the deltoid muscles, specifically the anterior deltoids, which helps to increase shoulder strength and definition.
  2. The half Arnold press uses a circular action to increase shoulder mobility and flexibility.
  3. Performing the exercise while seated stabilizes the core and minimizes motion, resulting in more focused muscle activation in the shoulders.
  4. The half Arnold press works several shoulder muscles, facilitating balanced development of the deltoids and improving total shoulder strength and stability.

Exercise Tips:

  • Maintain your chest up, shoulders down and back, and core engaged throughout the action. Maintain a small bend at the knees and a neutral spine.
  • Press the dumbbells above and rotate your hands outward until your arms are completely stretched and the dumbbells are directly above your head.
  • Lower the dumbbells slowly and steadily back to shoulder height, reversing the rotation of your hands as you fall.
  • Throughout the exercise, focus on activating the deltoid muscles while avoiding excessive lower back arching or shoulder shrugging.
