Blast Your Shoulders

The Warm Up:

Always warm-up before a workout. Doing so prepares your muscles to work, and can decrease your chances of injury. A warm-up is said to “activate” muscles. Which, in theory, helps with growth. I wish I paid heed to this rule when I was a newbie. Then, never did comprehensive warm-ups, and one of my shoulders suffered from it.

Warm Up Exercises:

2 sets 10-15 reps of pike push ups

2 sets of 15 – 25 reps side laterals with bands

2 sets of 15 -25 reps front laterals with bands

Arm circles 25 forward, 25 back, no rest in between.
