This is a great video with some excellent but tough exercises


There are 3 important exercises you should do if you are trying to develop a strong shoulder.

Like the most bodyweight exercises you don’t isolate your shoulders during these movements.

Every exercise involves muscles to stabilize and support the movement, but the focus are your shoulders.

Before working out your shoulder, you should make sure to warm up your wrists and shoulder area,because during this exercises you will put a lot of stress on your wrists, arms and shoulders.

i also go for a short 5 minute run before the workout to make my blood circulate in the whole body.

The first exercise is the handstand.

Kick up to a handstand on a wall to assist yourself and hold this position for at least 1 minute.

If you can’t hold it for 1 minute, try to hold for as long as you can.

You can go to a handstand position in different ways.

Kicking up with your head facing the wall,or going up with your face away from the wall.

I recommend to learn both movements.

Make sure to breathe so your head doesn’t turn red.

The second exercise is called Pike Push ups Move your legs to your body and bring your hips up.

3 sets of 10 to 20 reps should be good to strengthen your shoulder.

You can also do this exercise with your legs elevated.

This will make it harder and also target more areas of your shoulder.

The third exercise is called Planche Lean.

Go in a push up position and make sure to have a hollow body and straight arms.

Lean forward so your shoulders go over your wrists.

You can also do Pseudo Planche Push ups, but holding this position is essential and the key to a strong shoulder.

As always, have fun working out, try out new exercises and stay motivated.
