Tip: Master the Neutral-Grip Press

This is a great overhead press variation if your shoulders are getting cranky. Here's how to do it right.

The neutral grip (palms facing one another) is the best grip to use if overhead pressing exercises are bothering your shoulders.

With the elbows pointed slightly forward instead of straight out to the sides, press the dumbbells using a neutral grip. Bring the dumbbells close together at the top without touching them.
