Strengthen Your Shoulders from the Inside Out: Part 3

[ read time ~ 1 minute + VIDEO ]

I’ve previously written about strengthening deep inside your shoulders with a simple exercise. (You can watch it here.) And I’ve discussed how to advance that exercise.

When you are able to perform the advanced exercise 15 times before the feeling or observation of fatigue occurs, try resting for 1 - 2 minutes and performing it again. If you are able to perform it another 15 times, rest again for 1 - 2 minutes and repeat it a third time.

If you can perform the exercise 15 times during this third time, you probably need to replace this exercise with a more difficult one.

Watch this video to learn 2 more challenging exercises:

The same 3 ways to make the original exercise more challenging may be used to advance the new exercises in the above video:

  1. Stretch the tubing more by standing further from the attachment as your start the exercise.

  2. Stretch the tubing more by taking a larger step during the exercise.

  3. Use tubing with a thicker diameter. (Thicker tubing is harder to stretch.)
