Cuban Dumbbell Press

The Cuban Dumbbell Press is a great warm-up or recovery workout for upper body exercise. It strengthens one's rotator cuff and makes doing presses, pull-ups and push-ups easier.

Below are the steps detailing how to do a ​Cuban Dumbbell Press:

  • After choosing a light-weight dumbbell (ideally 5 or 10lbs), pull arms up to sternum level
  • Keeping wrists straight, perform an overhead press
  • Repeat for 10 to 20 reps
