Blast Your Shoulders

The Warm-Up:

Always warm-up before a workout. Doing so prepares your muscles to work, and can decrease your chances of injury. A warm-up is said to “activate” muscles. Which, in theory, helps with growth. I wish I paid heed to this rule when I was a newbie. Then, never did comprehensive warm-ups, and one of my shoulders suffered from it.

Warm-Up Exercises:

2 sets 10-15 reps of pike push-ups

2 sets of 15 – 25 reps side laterals with bands

2 sets of 15 -25 reps front laterals with bands

Arm circles 25 forward, 25 back, no rest in between.

As an athlete for over 19 years and a broke single mom for most of that time, I created brokesinglemomfitness.com, now LLAFIT.com, to aid anyone who believes the road to fitness requires a lot of cash or time. In reality, the way to fitness is paved with knowledge and firm principles; teaching readers how to master both is the goal of this site. LLAFIT - Lifelong Affordable Fitness
