Shoulder workout for beginners may turn out to be the toughest compared to all other body part workouts excluding the leg day. The good news is, harder you work on your shoulders, better aesthetics it adds to your body. Keeping the beginner factor with a vision of aesthetics in mind here we list the top 5 workout to get you started.
1. Military Press :
Military press is one of the best exercise to start with. You need a long barbell rod, a bench and weights. Take the barbell rod, add weights (5 kg plates for boys and no weights for girls) to begin with. Sit on the bench. Hold the rod shoulder width apart with your back straight. Bring it closer to the upper chest, then move it straight up above the shoulders. Counted as 1 rep. Perform 3 sets of 15 reps each. This exercise is meant to add volume to front shoulders. Breathe in when you bring it closer to chest and breathe out at the stretch.
2. Lateral Raise :
Lateral raise puts your lateral muscles to work which is located in the upper part of the shoulders. Dumbbells are the only equipments required to perform this exercise. Stand straight with your feet shoulder width apart, hold dumbbells to the sides (5 kgs for boys, 2 kgs for girls to start with). Raise your arms parallel with the floor, then bring the dumbbells down slowly to the starting position. Remember to keep your elbows slightly bend to get the maximum output. Breathe in when you stretch to the sides and breathe out while bringing the dumbbells down to starting position. Perform 3 sets of 15 reps each.
