Sexy Shoulders Are Always In Season!
This is it! Our last exercise for the Fitness Friday series!
I know finding the time to exercise can be challenging. But remember: you don't need to be perfect! If you can find at least 30 minutes a day to fit in a few cardio and strengthening exercises, you will feel so much better. I'm grateful for the opportunity to introduce myself and share these simple exercises -- hopefully this helps you focus on toning and strengthening your arms and shoulders.
To complete our arms and shoulder workout, I recommend dumbbell upright rows. A sexy shoulder is always in season! Uprights rows work the muscles of your shoulders, neck, bicep and even your forearm! There are many variations of this exercise, so I encourage you to try them. The one I'm demonstrating is perfect to begin with, particularly if you haven't done them before.
Alternating Dumbbell Upright Rows
1. Choose a pair of dumbbells and stand with your feet about shoulder-width apart.
2. Grasp the dumbbells with an overhand grip (palms facing down) and place them on your thighs.
3. While keeping your back straight, alternate lifting the dumbbells straight up in front of your chest.
4. Keep the dumbbells as close to your body as possible. Pause, and then slowly lower them back down to the front of your thigh area. Repeat for the desired reps.
Aim for 3 sets of 10 – 12 reps. Increase weights as you feel comfortable.
