Being in a the fitness arena, competing, training and coaching others, I find the shoulders to be of great importance. Not only for a better figure, but for healthier movement and posture.
The shoulder area is composed by numerous muscles, bones, and joints. Some of the muscles involved in shoulder movement are the deltoid, supraspinatus, coracobrachialis, serratus anterior, pectoralis, trapezius, latissimus dorsi, teres major, and rhomboid major among others.
The shoulders encompass one of the most mobile areas in the body. The wide range of motion permits great rotation, abduction and adduction. Simultaneously, this wide range makes the shoulder area more prone to injury.
Video Clip for the Week: Front Raises
They are amazing and specifically work the front deltoids. Front Raises develop strong and nicely – sculpted shoulders. They also help improve shoulder joint stability. Always remember that the more muscle you have, the more fat you burn… So lift heavy!
