Try 12 repetitions of each of these four moves to tone your shoulders. You'll be doing side raises, overhead presses, front belly to high “v” lifts, and wide reach presses.
Chest Press on Back
This move specifically targets the chest and triceps, but if you lift your hips off the floor while performing 20 repetitions with five pound weights, you’ll get a total body move that rocks!
Angled Armed Triceps
Your triceps helps chisel the back side of the shoulder. Form counts for everything on this move, so check out the video and use a mirror as you perform the lift to make sure you’re hitting it right.
Bicep Curl Combo
Believe it or not, your bicep is made up of three separate muscles! This bicep curl combo hits all three by changing the hand position in each move.
This is the final move for shapely shoulders – the rear fly hits the back of the delt muscle which gives a lift to the space above the triceps. Form is key – make sure you keep the arms in alignment with the shoulder.
