Shoulder Muscle Strengthening Exercise

  1. Begin by sitting in a chair, with your back straight. Your feet should be flat on the floor, spaced apart so that they are even with your shoulders.

  2. Hold hand weights straight down at your sides, with your palms facing inward.

  3. Take 3 seconds to lift your arms straight out, sideways, until they are parallel to the ground.

  4. Hold the position for 1 second.

  5. Take 3 seconds to lower your arms so that they are straight down by your sides again.

  6. Pause. Repeat 8 to 15 times. Rest; do another set of 8 to 15 repetitions.
