If you’re ready to jump start your fitness routine for 2017, we’ve got you covered with an eight-part video series featuring easy-to-do resistance band workouts accessible for almost all fitness levels. The best part? No gym or fancy equipment needed. In part six of our series, we’re targeting the shoulder muscles.
Our shoulders are one of the most widely used muscles in the upper body. We rely on our shoulders when lifting groceries, performing manual labor and picking up children and pets, to name a few. In the sixth installment of our video series, Matt Gardner, health and wellness coordinator for Hometown Health, demonstrates easy-to-perform shoulder exercises that are adaptable for any exercise level and age — even for those with mobility issues. These moves can be executed seated or standing, and with either a circular band or one that needs to be tied from end-to-end. If using the tied band, make the circle tighter for more resistance, looser for less.
