The Slow-Pace Shoulder Workout Routine is designed to help you to increase the size of the muscles in your shoulders. Remember, changing up the types of workouts you do will help your muscles grow faster and stronger. Slow-paced shoulder movements in particular, require endurance, coordination and core strength. Slow movements have actually been shown to build muscle better than faster movements. If you think about it, moving slowly causes you to expend force to a weight over a longer period of time, which results in greater muscle adaptations. In addition, moving slowly causes you to focus your mind on your slow-paced shoulder workout while you are firing other muscles in your body that are used to help stabilize you during this slow-pace shoulder workout. Go slow and see the benefits.
