A regular shoulder workout routine should be included in everyone’s fitness toolbox. Let me tell you why — The shoulder joint is the most mobile joint in the body…. Which, can be a good and a bad thing. The shoulder socket is shallow, which makes it more prone to injury. Hence, weak shoulder muscles will put you at risk for early arthritis, rotator cuff tears and other injuries. Therefore, you must incorporate regular shoulder exercises into your workout whether you are trying to build big strong shoulders or rehabilitate weak shoulders.

Instructions

Perform each exercise for 90 seconds. Finish all of the exercises, take a one-minute break, and then repeat.

If you are using a heavy weight to build muscle, move at a slower pace. If you are using a lighter weight, you may go at a faster pace to build endurance.
