Proper form: dumbbell military press
I currently have a question regarding proper exercise technique on the dumbbell shoulder press.
I used to bring the dumbbells down to the top of the shoulders and pressed them up a bit narrow to take advantage of my triceps strength.
It looked like this:
Recently a physiotherapist crossed my way and he corrected my for:
-Elbows UNDER the dumbbells/wrists . In my case the elbows were always behind them.
- Forearms perpendicular to the floor.
-Only lower to ear level.

-I tried to correct it this way but I have a hard time to do it . When trying to get the elbows under the dumbbells it feels like a strong stretch and its damn uncomfortable and difficult to keep this during the reps. I have the impression that i constantly have to push the elbows forward to hold the postion at the bottom of the lift.
- Also with this angle i cannot take advantage of my triceps strength to bring the dumbbells up. I am much weaker this way.
Here I want to ask the pressers which issues are important health wise. I pressed without issues 15 years this way.
Is the guy right?
