15-Minute Workout for Strong, Sexy Shoulders

We love shoulder workouts because they make you feel so strong. Sculpting your shoulders also creates this beautiful hourglass shape, with your shoulders back and your heart forward so you stand tall and confident!

We’ve been really focusing on our posture and toning our shoulders during The 21 Day Fall Challenge. This challenge is all about forming new healthy habits and it includes 21 days of daily workouts, fitness and nutrition challenges, delicious fall recipes, and so much motivation and support. If you haven’t joined yet, you can sign up HERE to have your fittest fall and get into a body positive routine leading up to the holidays.

Throughout the challenge, we’re doing Daily Toning Moves with 21 reps of each. Today we’re giving you a sneak peek at five of our favorite shoulder moves featured from the challenge. These will sculpt your sexy shoulders with some bonus toning for your arms, back, and abs — all in just 15 minutes!

Now let’s get physical!

Go through the circuit three times.

1. Arnold Press

Tones your triceps, shoulders, and chest!

Start holding two dumbbells directly in front of your face with arms bent at a 90-degree angle. Open arms out to the side, maintaining the bend at the elbow. From there, press arms directly up to full extension. Return to start by reversing the entire movement.

Perform 21 reps.

 

2. Upright Row

Tones your back and shoulders!

Stand with your feet hip-width apart. Hold dumbbells in front of your hips and maintain a slight bend in your knees. Pull your hands to your chest while keeping your elbows bent and straight out to your sides. Bring them back down in front of your hips.

Perform 21 reps.

3. Lateral Raise

Strengthens your shoulders!

Stand with your feet hip-width apart and weights in your hands by your sides. Maintain a slight bend in your elbows as you raise your arms out to the side. Slowly lower back to start.

Perform 21 reps.

4. Pushup

Sculpts your chest, shoulders, and core!

Begin in a plank position with your wrists directly over your shoulders. Keeping your core engaged, bend at the elbows and lower your chest toward the ground. Extend your arms to return to starting position.

Perform 21 reps.

5. Single Arm Row 

Tones your upper back, shoulders, and triceps!

Stand with your right leg slightly bent in front of you, left leg extended behind, left arm holding a weight extended down below your chest, and upper body hinging slightly forward. Pull the weight to your waistline so your arm is bent at the elbow. Reverse the move to start.
