Main Muscle: Shoulders

  1. In a standing position, hold a pair of dumbbells at your side.
  2. Keeping your elbows slightly bent, raise the weights directly in front of you to shoulder height, avoiding any swinging or cheating.
  3. Return the weights to your side.
  4. On the next repetition, raise the weights laterally, raising them out to your side to about shoulder height.
  5. Return the weights to the starting position and continue alternating to the front and side.

Feb 1, 2014 12:37 PM: Shoulders down and back. Do the move slowly.

Focus on isolating the delt and leave your ego at the door - use light weights ya beast! Do them to fatigue.

Don't try to lift with your arm's strength.
