    DB seated shoulder press

    (Did a search and didn't find what I was looking for).

    When doing these should I take the DBs down to my shoulders, to a 90 degree angle OR should I take the DBs down as far as they can go, so my elbow is forming a V shape?

    As far as you can go without losing form, and if you lose form lighten up.

    As far as you can go... and try them standing to work your core and balance.
