Shoulder Workout for Beginners

The shoulder muscle consists of 3 parts. These are anterior deltoid, lateral deltoid, posterior deltoid. Besides these major muscles, there are 4 more muscles to consider. These muscles are called the rotator cuff muscles. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that stabilize the shoulder and allow it to move. (infraspinatus, supraspinatus, teres minor, and subscapularis) They are very important in shoulder movement and stability.

Weakness of these muscles cause increased shoulder instability during lifting, increasing the likelihood of injury to your shoulders. These small muscles help stabilize the shoulder joint throughout the motion of various pushing and pulling exercises.

The first 3 exercises of this training program work to warm up and strengthen the rotator cuff muscles. Other exercises focus more on your front shoulder, lateral and posterior shoulder muscles.

This workout plan may not be suitable for those who have never exercised or are beginning to exercise for the first time. It is recommended that you have at least 1 month of basic training experience to start this workout.
