Keep your shoulders healthy with this....

This routine is a great way to maintain overall shoulder health. Heavy weights are not needed at all, 2.5-5 lb dumbbells work just perfect. Make sure you do all of these exercises under control for best form.

Do this sequence non stop for 10 reps of each exercise.

Lateral raises ( palms up )

Lateral raises ( thumbs up )

Lateral raises ( thumbs down )

Front raises ( thumbs up )

***Cross overs ( palms facing away from you )

Military press

*** The cross overs-have your palms face away from you and your arms out in front of your hips. Then bring your arms up and over your head like you were going to do jumping jacks ( minus the jump ). Cross your arms in front of your head and then bring them back towards the hips.


  1. I'm lost on the cross-over directions...video pleaase!

  2. Basically put the dumbbells in front of your thighs. Have your palms facing away from your thighs ( so facing forward ) and then while keeping your palms facing forward lift the dumbbells up like a jumping jack. I know this is close to what I wrote in the post but maybe the slight chance of words helps

  3. it helps. thx. i will try this out thurs.
