10-Min Shoulder Workout

One of the key muscles to promote healthy movement patterns are shoulders.

They are the most mobile joint in the body and are responsible for many actions, including adduction, abduction, flexion, extension, and external rotation.

Aesthetically, training shoulders helps us appear to have a broader upper body which results in a perceptively smaller waist.

Functionally, it decreases the chances of an injury, improves the quality of our yoga sessions, elevates plank endurance, and boosts our confidence, mood, and focus (thanks to a better posture!).

This 10-Min Shoulder Workout does not require any equipment. Working out with our own body weight is extremely convenient and effective. Plus, the intimidation factor is lower if we are just getting started with fitness.

If you already weight-train your shoulders, then use this session as an activation circuit.

Let’s do this!
