ID#:14130
Description:Viewed from the right anterior-oblique side, the man pictured in this image was seated in a gymnasium performing various strength-training exercises. At this point in his exercise routine, he was performing repetitions of an exercise known as a seated dumbbell press. In each hand he held a 70lb dumbbell, which he was “pressing”, or slowly pushing the weights up over his head by simultaneously extending each arm, then slowly returning each dumbbell to a position down to his head level, with each arm then flexed at 90o. Hopefully, he was also keeping well hydrated during his exercise regimen by drinking fresh water during his workout.
