Today’s 10-Minute Workout Quickie is all about sexy shoulders. Before you start, make sure to warm up by rolling your shoulders, lifting them up, and stretching a little bit. Our shoulders are prone to injuries, so we want to make sure we warm up to prevent any kind of damage.
You will need either small weights (I am using 2.5 lbs in the pictures) or you can also use water bottles or whatever you have handy that can function as a weight.
Repeat all exercises back to back for a total of 4 rounds.
Butterfly with Overhead Press
Stand or kneel with your back straight, your upper arms parallel to the floor with a 90-degree angle. Palms facing to the front.
Keep your arms at a 90-degree angle and bring them close together in front of your head
Bring your arms back to starting position and press them up over your head until they are fully extended
Bring them back into starting position and repeat
Shoulder Front Raise with Pull Back
Stand or kneel with your back straight, arms lose in front of you.
Keep your arms extended and lift them up until they are parallel to the floor. Palms are facing to the floor.
Pull your right arm back until you reach a 90-degree angle.
Bring your arm back by extending your elbow.
Repeat the same movement for the left side.
Bring both arms back into starting position and repeat 15 times.
Stand or kneel with your arms long, palms facing your legs.
Keep your arms extended and lift them to the side until they are parallel to the floor.
Bring your arms back to starting position and repeat.
Tip: Keep your elbows slightly bend to make the movement easier.
