Shine Athletica Home Workout Video: Shoulders & Back
Posted on May 23, 2016
Today we are focusing on a set of moves to strengthen shoulders and back.
Moves #1 and # 2- Lateral Raises: this works your deltoid muscles (shoulders). This exercise builds up the size of your shoulders, and also helps to stabilize the strength of the shoulders, making other lifting activities easier. This exercise also contracts the core muscles. Be sure to choose a weight that is correct for you so that you do not over extend yourself.
Move #3- Straight Arm Raise: This exercise can be used with either dumbbells or a barbell, whichever is most comfortable for you. This exercise works the frontal shoulder muscles, and also works the core at the same time.
Move #4- Seated Cable Row: This machine exercise works your middle back, biceps, and triceps. This exercise is also done on Shoulders/Back Day. It is important to stay controlled in this movement throughout to reach your full potential. If you feel that the machine is pulling you forward too much, you may want to go down in weight and work yourself up to an attainable goal.
