For Christmas I’d like a soft, red wool sweater with a snowflake design, a gift certificate to Barnes and Nobel, a 1000 lumens tactical flashlight and really pretty shoulders.
Shoulders with a little muscle on them look great on men and women alike. One caveat for you men, however….If you train your shoulders hard your underwear may start to show and you’ll suddenly find yourself compelled to frolic in the water at the beach.
On second thought Santa,
If you take care of the rest of my list I’ll take care of my shoulders. Nice shoulders are one of those things you have to earn. You can’t buy them and you can’t get them as a gift from someone else. I have a few great shoulder exercises in my repertoire. Below I’ve included a link for a very high quality video of me performing one of them. It looks like a very easy exercise but give it a try.
When you pause while performing the motion, make sure to come to a complete stop before continuing. It makes a big difference in the effectiveness. This is a great finishing exercise but you can also use it as a warm up at the beginning of your workout.
I’ll certainly be spending some quality time this Christmas season working on these shoulders of mine!
