Boulder shoulders anyone?

Give your Physique some SHOULDERS....

Everyone want a nice round shape to their shoulders. Rather than lolly gagging around the gym watching what others do, make it simple and follow a few key techniques to give your body the sculpture-like upper half you deserve.

Need: Set of dumbbells (10-20lbs)

3 sets of 12-15 reps

1) Shoulder Press

Start: Sit on a bench or a stability ball with feet flat on the floor with feet shoulder-width apart. Hold a pair of dumbbells in each hand with palms facing forward.

Workout: Start with your core tight, press both dumbbells up and over your head so they almost touch (palms remaining facing forward). Hold. Slowly lower to the start position. Repeat.

2) Lateral Raise

Start: Stand and hold each dumbbells in front of your thighs, palms facing inward.

Workout: In a standing position with dumbbells in each hand, slightly bend your elbows and lift the dumbbells up and out to the sides. Keep your arms parallel to the floor, and hold. Slowly lower the dumbbells to the starting position. Repeat.

3) Front Raise

Start: Stand with feet hip-width apart, knees and elbows slightly bent. Dumbbells in each hand in front of your thighs with overhand grip.

Workout: Lift the dumbbells up and parallel to the ground. Hold. Slowly lower to the starting position. Repeat.
