Many of you may not know but strength exercises are not just for your body. There are strength exercises that aim to enhance specific body parts too like your arms and shoulder.
Below in this article I have covered a few strength exercises that will help you improve the strength of your arms and your shoulders that you can do quite easily from your home itself.
For this exercise you will to find a step or a bench. Once you find it sit on the ground but close to bench or step you have found.
When you sit make sure your knees are bent. Now hold the edge of the bench or step and straighten your hands.
Then again bend your arms to a 90 degrees angle and then again straighten them out while your heels push closer to the floor. Do this for at 10-15 times before moving on.
Diamond Push up
For this exercise as the name suggests you will have to do push ups but the only difference here is that your hands are placed in a diamond shape which mean that you need to place your hands in such a way that your thumbs and index fingers touch each other.
The change in the position of your hands will provide your triceps the additional burn they need and will help strengthen them even more.
In case you are a boxing fan you will definitely like this strength exercise. Here you will have to start by standing while keeping your hips and legs slightly apart and knees slightly bent.
Now you just keep your elbows in and stretch out the right arm in the forward direction while keeping your other arm back. Now change to the other arm and punch again. You should punch at least 10-15 times with each of your arms.
Shoulder Stabilization Series (I, Y, T, W O)
I agree this may seem a little weird at first but trust me you can do it quite easily once you understand what you have to do.
For this exercise you will need to lie down on the floor on your stomach and stretch out your arms above your head with your palms touching each other.
Now all you have to do is move your arms in way that they form each of the letters mentioned above.
If you still remember your PE classes then you will find this relatively easy but in case you don’t there is nothing to worry about. All you have to do here is stand with your hands stretched by your sides.
Make sure they are perpendicular to the torso. Now move your hands in a way that they make clockwise circles. Make sure you do it slowly. Continue doing this for about 25 seconds. Then move it in an anticlockwise direction for the same period of time.
