Best wourkout routine for shoulder with dumbbells
Shoulders are a very intricate and delicate muscle. What I mean is that you must be extremely careful because just a small pain in the shoulder can cause destruction your workout. Now in order to truly workout your shoulders for size and definition these workouts are necessary. This is the safest way to work out your shoulders also. Light weight really is key for the shoulders. 5-10 pound dumbbells are really all you need to get this workout started.
The first exercise you are going to do is one that require you to lift your arms up in the air from your sides. This means the weight start at your sides and you life them up with your arms straight. I'll have an image to demonstrate. Do 3 sets and make sure you do 50 reps.
The second exercise will be the same starting motion but you will left them with your arms straight but in front of you one arm at a time. 50 reps each arm and 3 sets per arm.
The next exercise you'll probably have to go a little heavier. Once you have weights that feel a bit heavier prepare to do an overhead press. This means you do the same motion as an incline press but with your back straight up.
The last exercise you will want to grab fairly heavy weights, you are going to preform shrugs. Three sets of 20 should suffice. Once you have done that your traps should be quite large size and quite defined. That is your complete dumbbell based workout for shoulder gains.
