Who doesn’t want strong sculpted shoulders? They look great in a sleeveless dress and help you with those complicated yoga poses. Strengthening your shoulders can also help your posture, for those who spend hours sitting at their desk. The best shoulder exercises help to target all of your shoulder muscles. So, grab your weights or resistance bands and start sculpting your shoulders with these exercises.

Upright Rows

Stand your legs hip-width apart, arms straight down, holding a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing towards your body. Pull your elbows up and out wide to lift the dumbbells to your chest. Straighten the arms down to start position. Do 12-15 reps.

Inverted Push Ups

Start with your arms straight and hands pressed on the floor and your hips in the air, like an upside-down “V”, with your feet flat. Bend your elbows out wide to the sides bringing your head down to touch the floor. Press through hands to return to start. Do 10-12 reps.

Lateral Raises

Stand with knees slightly bent, a dumbbell in each hand by your sides, and your palms facing your legs. Raise arms out wide until parallel to the floor shoulder height. Return back down to start. Do 12 Reps.
