The Sexy V….

WV’s AKA ~ Wide Over Head Shoulder Press

Move Works: Deltoids (Shoulders), Trapezius (mid to upper back), Triceps 

  • Start this move by standing about shoulder width apart. Chest out, stomach in & shoulders back. Use 3 to 5 pound weights (depending on your fitness level and what you are trying to achieve) 
  • Start with hands holding the weights by shoulders in a W formation, elbows at sides ~ see 1st picture above.  Don’t pitch forward or bring shoulders forward.
  • Come out of the W formation ~ see 2nd picture above ~ pushing shoulder and arms out and up wider than shoulder width into V formation ~ see 3rd picture above ~ bring arms back down to W ~ that is one rep. 
  • You can either do 3 to 4 sets with 10 to 12 reps 5 to 8 pound dumb bells. Or use 3 pound dumb bells and do a 30 seconds to a minute in a circuit routine.
  •  This is an awesome move if done right, be sure to take your time and squeeze the back muscles together when coming back to a W. I love this move and it helps to achieve that sexy V taper you always hear about!
  • As always see a doctor before starting an exercise routine!
