Dumbbell Shoulder Exercises II

GE DIGITAL CAMERAThis week I want to focus on some more shoulder exercises perfect for any overhead athlete or shoulder patient.  We call these “full can” and “lat raises” with dumbbells.  The first shown below is the “full can” exercise performed holding a weight and lifting up/down slowly with the dumbbell (or can) up towards the ceiling.  4 sets of 10 reps is great!  Next exercise is the traditional “lateral raises” with dumbbells.  Easy side lifting up and down slowly working in a painfree ROM.  This should be performed with the dumbbell face down at the patients side as shown below.

Start light and have fun with these exercises!  Be safe:)GE DIGITAL CAMERA
