More Bang for Your Buck
I really like this compound exercise which is providing a strength workout to a number of upper body muscles including shoulders and arms. You get more bang for your buck because you are working a whole lot of muscles in one movement. One word of caution – be aware of control in this movement and also make sure your weights are correct for your function today. This will prevent injury.
Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent, abs in, weights in hand. Begin by bringing the weights up next to ears, palms face out. Contract the shoulders to lift the weights straight up and slightly forward (you should see them out of the corner of your eye). Lower back down to shoulder level and repeat.
Have fun with this exercise – it has created a wonderful silhouette for me. Everyone comments on my wonderfully shaped shoulders.
