10 Shoulder Strengthening Exercises

I add these 10 shoulder strengthening exercises to my Wednesday and Saturday routine. It is best to use very light weight, a stretch band, or no weight at all as some of these can cause shoulder injury. These are all about improving range of motion and strengthening micro muscles and joints so you don't want to load on weight. Before doing any new exercise routine, consult with your physician and fitness trainer.

  1. Internal and external rotation - I don't do this sitting down like the picture shows
