How to Get Sexy Shoulders in 10 Minutes

Sexy Shoulder Workout
One body part I take honest pride in is my shoulders. They used to be on the TINY side because I am small boned and danced my entire life. I decided enough was enough and went for a full year developing there shape at all angles and love the way they look in clothes and BONUS they make my waist look smaller too!

Remember when you do this workout CONNECT with your muscles, breathe oxygen into them and flow. I often  see women throwing weights around and it drives me crazy, make it a point to really squeeze the muscle you are working whether it be shoulders in this workout or your booty on a leg day. This workout will take you about 10 minutes and can be done at home while Netflix binging!

Sexy Shoulders in 10 Minutes Workout:

Equipment I Used:

  • Pair of 5 lb. Dumbbells

Complete one round of 15 reps for each exercise, rest for 1 minute to give your shoulders a break and repeat 2 more times. After you complete this workout stretch out and pat yourself on the back, you did it!

Sexy Shoulder Workout

Exercises:

  • Half Arnold Press: If you ever wondered how to get a more capped look on your shoulders this is exactly how. Keep your neck down and focus on bringing your arms up into a perfect box and squeezing at the top. Come back down to starting position.
  • Upright Row: This movement can be hard for those of us who have our shoulders up to our ears so before you start bring your shoulders down and back. Start with a slight bend in your knee with palms facing you hold the dumbbells. Bring your elbows up as high as they will go without bringing your shoulders up. Squeeze the tops of your shoulders and bring it back down to starting position.
  • Rear Delt Flye: Have a slight bend in your knee and bend forward at the waist. As you bring your arms up into a hug keep your elbows bent and your abs tight. Squeeze your back muscles in towards your spin and hold the flye position for a count before coming back to the starting position.
  • Squat Push Press: Sit your booty back and bring your dumbbells in front of your legs, as you squeeze your booty tight bring your arms up towards your shoulders. Bend your legs and press to straight arms over your head. Do not lock out your elbows, keep a steady flow!

    I love working out my legs…it gets my heart rate up and gets me sweating FAST…but recently I like you, have LOVED my shoulders…this looks like an awesome workout! *I love that you put your sports bra was from the side of the road 🙂 ha ha

    • Thanks Sarah! I am all about the legs to hehe next weeks workout is leg focused so be sure to check it out! haha yes in Bangkok people sell things in little stalls so its nice to pick up odds and ends <3

  • A few of these are in the work out videos I do! I always put my tension in my shoulders, and so they are full of knots! It makes it difficult to work out, because I feel like no matter how much I stretch them, they still are so tight. Any pointers for that? Love the ease of this; it’s one to print off and so doable when lounging around!

    • YES! Emily, you have to relax them EVERYDAY and for shoulder exercises, I would avoid them until you get those knots out, someone needs an epsom salt bath and a massage STAT! xo C
