Strong shoulders help you strengthen and firm the rest of your body because they assist in most exercises for your chest, back, triceps and biceps.
If you have never done weight training before, you need to learn a correct form to perform each exercise. Quality of training
influences your progress, more than quantity. Start weight training with light weights and build the strength gradually. When you lift light, you should perform 15-20 repetitions (reps) per set. Your 2 last reps of the set should be challenging; you have to feel the burn in your muscles. If the last two reps are easy to perform, you need to use heavier weight. When you start lifting heavier, you can do 12-15 or 10-12 reps per set.
Below is one of my simplest shoulders workouts that can be performed at the gym or at home. If you want to start working out at home, you need to have only couple sets of dumbbells.
Now, get motivated, set the goal, and start building a toned, sexy body.
