As Scott demonstrated to make sure your bench is adjusted all the way up. Your feet should be planted flat on the ground. Keep your back and head against the pad, maintain a neutral spine, keep your elbows in line with your hips so that your arms are a little in front of your body, and keep your wrists straight. 

Breath out when you push straight up when you come down your arms should be at a 90-degree angle, Breath in on the way down make sure your arms are a little in front of you. From the 90-degree angle push straight up.

There you have it the correct way to do the seated dumbbell shoulder press.
