Because of our hectic schedules some of us simply do not have the time to make it to the gym on a regular basis. For those of us pressed for time or who are budget-conscious or self-conscious, an at home work out may be the solution.
In order to achieve a great workout most individuals think that they must invest in an expensive gym membership, equipment, or a personal trainer. However, an individual can build muscle mass and tone through simple calisthenics exercises performed at home. Incorporate strengthening with stretching to provide a well-rounded shoulder workout.
Most of the calisthenics exercises explained in the previous section are suitable and most popular for home workout:
- Pull ups
- Lateral Raises
- Front Deltoid Raises
- Push Ups
- Knee Push Ups
While all of the aforementioned are suitable for at home workout, to gain a more interactive experience, you can secure an instructional video and add some variety to your routine.
One can participate in a number of shoulder stretching exercises through yoga instructional videos. Techniques of yoga are employed, such as the downward dog and other poses, to strengthen the deltoids through low impact exercises.
Neck ExercisesStart by rotating the neck first to the right side of the body and then holding. Then alternate sides and hold, while breathing deeply in and out.
Chest ExercisesWith the arms elongated at your sides, arch your back while pressing your arms back as far as possible. This stretches the shoulder area, as well as, the back.
There are also other instructional videos that focus on stretching, strengthening, isometrics, and other movements that are required to meet your desired goals. Typically, the user will enjoy instructional videos because the individual can follow right along with the instructor. Many people feel comforted by the instructional tapes because they can watch the individual perform the exercise before actually attempting it themselves, thus minimizing risk of injury.
