Sexy Shoulder Exercises for Women
Attention Ladies! The summer heat is here and you know what that means: Sleeveless tops, sexy sundresses and swimsuits. You need a quick and effective shoulder workout to feel sexy at the pool, parties and special events and while wearing that sexy sundress. Here are some shoulder strengthening exercise solutions for you.
One of the most-important parts of the body to strength train is your shoulders. Training the entire shoulder area not only creates a sexy look, but it is also very important because the shoulders help with the daily things you do, such as carrying a purse, lifting heavy bags or boxes, carrying children and lifting things overhead.
Sculpting strong shoulders should be done in every angle of motion; this will help prevent the risk of injury and tone your shoulders equally. Another positive benefit from sculpting sexy shoulders is that it helps give the appearance of a slimmer waistline with proportional hips. Do I need to convince you any more how important it is to train those shoulders? This Total Gym workout gives you the knowledge you need to be on your way to looking and feeling your best this summer so you can show off your sexy shoulders when wearing your sundresses!
The Sexy Shoulder Workout Prescription
Do this workout two to three times a week along with a solid cardio plan to burn off extra calories. Perform each shoulder exercise 12-15 times, then transition directly to the next exercise with little to no rest. Rest once the entire circuit has been completed. Cycle through this continuous circuit for two to three sets. • For an extra challenge, add in a set of core exercises in between the shoulder circuit, then repeat from the top. • Increase the incline for an added challenge and to change the workout slightly.
