If you want lean, well toned shoulders you don’t need to spend several hours in a gym every week. And you don’t need a lot of equipment to get significant results. All you need is the right workout, with the most efficient exercises. Here’s a 5 minute shoulder workout list you should definitely try.
Tips For Training Shoulders
What You’ll Need
If you don’t consider yourself very active you can get through 1-2 workouts with just your bodyweight, but you’ll soon progress to needing additional resistance. You don’t need a lot of weight with these shoulder workouts.
Ideally, you’ll want to use dumbbells that allow you to do 12-15 repetitions before reaching muscle fatigue.
Must Do Exercises
There’s a few exercises you don’t want to skip because they target specific areas of your shoulders when using dumbbells.
Limit Rest Between Exercises
If you’re doing it right, you should feel a pretty good “burn” in your shoulders indicating muscle fatigue. Try to avoid resting for long periods. Five to ten seconds to regain some stamina is good, but resting for 30-60 seconds will limit the effectiveness of a quick 5 minute workout.
