Strengthening Your Shoulders

Strengthening Your Shoulders

Strong shoulders not only look good, but are important to minimize the risk of injury of these smaller muscle groups when lifting objects. Try these 3 exercises to help strengthen and tone your mid-section.

  1. Overhead -Shoulder Press – Start with a weight that is comfortable to you. While standing up straight, flex your elbows and lift your arms with weights to your side at shoulder level. Raise and extend your arms above your head and slowly lower back to the starting position. Repeat for 5 sets of 15 reps each.
  2. Side Lateral Raises – Start with a weight that is comfortable to you. While holding your weights at your side, abduct your shoulder and lift your weights out to the side to approximately 90 degrees of shoulder abduction. Slowly lower the weights back to your starting position. Repeat for 5 sets of 15 reps each.
  3. Bent Over Rows – Start with a weight that is comfortable to you. While standing, bend your knees and flex your torso forward. Drop arms down toward the floor while holding your weights below your body, squeeze your shoulder blades back and flex your elbows and pull weights up toward your chest. Slowly return weights to the starting position. Repeat for 5 sets of 15 reps each.
