Spring is going to come one of these days and it’s great to shape your body with weights plus, you want to do weight bearing activities. One of her favorites is the overhead press but you can impinge the shoulder joint if you don’t do it right. She says what you want to do is make sure you have weights that aren’t too heavy for you. Bring the weight up in an overhead press. Bring it up in front of you ears and release it down. She says if you bring the weight directly over your head there is a chance you can impinge the shoulder joint and the shoulder is an area where a lot of people get injured, so you want to make sure you are doing the exercise correctly. This exercise works the deltoids, or the shoulders and you want to 8-15 reps at least three times. Always working the large muscle groups before the small muscle groups if you are doing a total body on one day. Make sure you are getting that exercise in most days of the week for at least 60 minutes doing a combination of cardiovascular exercise and then resistive training. You can use your own body weight as well but eventually working up to using free weights.
