Want a shoulder workout routine you can do anywhere?
This quick and easy workout you can do at home, on vacation, or outside, and it’s ideal for busy moms, those who can’t afford gym memberships, and anyone on-the-go. This was a quick workout for me in preparation for a bikini competition when I didn’t have time to go to the gym but HAD to get a lifting session in.
All you need is a resistance band, which is light weight, easy to store, and inexpensive. You can also use dumbbells if you have them. The best way to do this is with a resistance bands set that comes with a door anchor so you can secure it into a doorway. Otherwise, you will need a very sturdy object to wrap these around. The resistance bands in the video are from Prosourcefit.com. They’re very durable, have the most comfortable handles of any I’ve used, and are super affordable!

How to Perform the Shoulder Workout
Do this as a circuit 3-4 times with 30 seconds between each exercise and then rest 1 minute after you complete the circuit. You can also perform one move at a time for 3-4 sets of each with 30 seconds between each, one after the other.
You’ll want to do about 15 reps per move, but it all depends on the weight of your band. If it’s a light band, 15-20 reps will be good. If it’s much thicker and harder to lift, you may need to go as low as 6-8 reps. All of the instructions for how to properly perform the moves are in the video.
