In this video, I teach 3 simple movements to work all of the muscles of the shoulders (deltoids). All you need is a pair of dumbbells and you are ready to go. Here’s a few training tips to get even better results:
- Use a weight you can control. A common mistake made in the gym is people fling weights around like they are Pom-Poms. Not only does this increase the risk of injury but it also makes the movement less effective. In fact, the risk exceeds the benefit. Slow down, concentrate on the shoulders and get the results. It’s not a race.
- Monitor your rest periods. I have been in gyms for decades now and rarely did I ever see someone timing their rest periods. Specific rest periods produce specific rest. If your goal is fat loss you want to limit rest periods to 30-60 seconds between sets in most cases. This leads to an increase in growth hormone which helps burn fat, build muscle and makes you better looking. You have to earn it though. Challenge yourself.
That’s it for now. If you have questions or comments take a moment to post them below.
