Strong shoulders contribute widely to your overall upper body strength. To have weak shoulders means lower productivity and you will eventually notice that it will affect your everyday life.
If you want more interesting and fun life activities. You should start strengthening that shoulders!
Below are some exercise tips:
SHOULDER STABILITY EXERCISE
Start in the low plank position and push off from the floor into the high plank. Make sure that you engage your core and keep your hips as stable as possible. Then return to the low plank position and repeat. Alternate between starting with your left and right arm.
Repeat this exercise ten to twelve times per side and do a total of three sets.
BARBELL FRONT RAISE
With your feet shoulder-width apart, position your hands shoulder-width apart on the bar (any wider can injure the shoulder joint) and bring the bar to the front of your thighs. Lift slowly under control until the barbell reaches shoulder height. Slowly lower back to the start.
INVERTED SHOULDER PRESS
This move is actually a pushup variation—which means you perform it anywhere, anytime. But instead of your pecs doing most of the pushing, this position shifts the workload onto your shoulders. DO IT: Begin in a traditional pushup position, but move your feet forward and raise your hips so your body forms an inverted “V.” Keeping your hips elevated, bend your elbows and lower your chest to the floor. Pause, and then reverse the movement. Bring your feet closer to your hands if you want to increase the difficulty for your shoulders.
Go for a stronger shoulder, stronger life!
