Some of us may dream about having toned and sculpted shoulders like Eva Longoria, but it may seem like more work than it’s worth. But with these three exercises you can achieve the shoulders you’ve always dreamed of!
1. Side Lateral Raise
Grab two dumbbells, start with 5 lbs. and work your way up. Begin standing, and slowly bring your arms to a T, and slowly bring them back to your sides, repeat 10-15 times in a row, rest and repeat.
2. Front Lateral Raise
Grab two dumbbells, start with a lighter weight, similar to side lateral raises. Begin standing and raise your arms out in front of you until they are perpendicular to the ground. Slowly lower your arms, repeat 10-15 times, rest, and repeat.
3. Dumbbell Shoulder Press
Grab two dumbbells, a little heavier than those you would use for side lateral raises or front lateral raises, about 10-15 lbs. Begin seated, with your core engaged and back straight. Bring your arms above your head, and lower them back down until your elbows make a 90-degree angle, repeat 10-15 times, rest, and repeat.
Be sure to keep your rest time to a minimum to keep your heart rate up! Try mixing it up by doing some jumping jacks or push-ups with them!
