A New, Old Shoulder Exercise

Hi,

Let’s take a break from some of the heavy reading you have been going through on this blog lately.  I know it is my fault!

I forgot about this old shoulder exercise, but saw an article in Ironman that mentioned it, so it is now becoming a new exercise again.

This is great for a finishing exercise after your shoulder workout.

I used to call them 1/2 circles, but Ironman used the term shoulder bombs and I like that better.

I will do a video of this later, but for now will just describe it.

You take a pair of light dumbbells and hold them near your waist with your palms facing away from you and your thumbs pointing to the ceiling. 

Raise the dumbbells up and out in an arc motion.  Continue the motion all the way over your head until your thumbs are pointing down. 

You can do this sitting or standing.  The most important part is to start with a light weight.

Remember this is after your normal shoulder workout.  You are also putting the dumbbells right over your head, so you don’t want to be to tired to stop them before they hit you on the head.

Try this new, old shoulder exercise for a super burn.

Thanks,

    I’m having some difficulty trying to load your blog. I have read it many times before and never gotten something like this, but now when I try to load something it just takes a little while (4-11 minutes ) and then just stops. I’ve tried with www or not. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

    Hi Mervin,
    If you are trying to load the video, it might be easier just to go to You Tube and access the video (by the number) there. Hope that works for you. Thanks.
