STRONG SHOULDERS CIRCUIT
This circuit only requires a set of dumbbells
...and it gives your shoulders a well-rounded challenge, targeting all 3 heads of the deltoid (shoulder) muscle.
What You'll Need: I used a set of 10-lb dumbbells, but be sure to select a weight that works for you. This circuit primarily targets muscular endurance, so the goal isn't to go super heavy.
How To Do This: Perform 12 repetitions of each move, then immediately go on to the next exercise. Once you've gone through everything once, take a 30-60 second recovery. Repeat for a total of 2-3 sets. You'll notice that for some of the exercises, I do one arm first, then the other, then both together. You can do it this way, or complete all exercises using both arms at once, or even complete all exercises with one arm at a time. Totally up to you! No matter what, you'll still do 12 reps for each arm.
If you have any shoulder pain during this workout, select a lighter resistance. As someone who has recovered from a shoulder injury, it took me a long time to work my way up to overhead movements. Do what you can do!
