Best Shoulder Exercises

You find it so hard to play any type of sport when you have tight shoulders. Why this is so?

Simply put, your shoulders are composed of three essential parts: the anterior and posterior deltoid (for pressing movements) and medial deltoid (for raising objects). Each part needs to be enhanced, requiring you to perform the following best shoulder exercises I found in Home Workout Routine.

Shoulder - Front Press 1

Shoulder - Front Press 2


BACK PRESS: “allows you to add considerable strength and size to your shoulders”
