Video: Four exercises to work shoulders

The shoulder joint is weak naturally, so building the muscles around your shoulder joint is extremely important to make that part of your body healthier. Heidi Parr, a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist, says building this muscle will help you in other areas that involve the shoulder, such as like playing golf or tennis.

Shoulders respond the best to higher repetitions of lower weight because it’s a smaller muscle group that can’t handle a lot. Parr recommends leaning more toward higher reps, in the 15 to 16 range using slightly lower weight.

In this video, Parr demonstrates four exercises, that when done regularly, can help build that muscle around your shoulder joints. Each exercise in the video should be repeated 10 to 16 times, followed by a 30-second break. Repeat that same exercise for two more sets of 10 to 16 repetitions before moving on to the next exercise.
