Be sure to warm up first before doing any of the should exercises: I walk in place for 2-4 min. with raising my arms above my head. You need to get those joints warmed up and ready so you don't injure yourself. I had shoulder problems and had shots into my shoulder and did physical therapy. Now, I always warm those joints before lifting my weights and I use 5 pound weights.

I've been getting much better results with my shoulders working them in compound movements, instead of isolated shoulder exercises. My favorite is the clean/push press combination with double kettlebells. Bench press, bent-over rows and pull-ups or lat pull downs will also hit your delts while working your front or back, and teach your muscles to all work together properly.

Just a couple of things to keep in mind. Shoulder muscles are small compared to other muscles so you should not go heavy. Pick a weight that is light but tires you out by the 10th rep. Its very easy to injure this area. Also exercise this area last.

BICEP CURLS, TRICEP EXTENSION, FLYS, LATERAL SHOULDER PRESS, CHEST PRESS AND FORWARD PRESS. Use a dumbell, medicine ball, liquid laundry detergent laundry or resistance band.

What is a good upper body exercise in the spark collection that would be really good for strengthening shoulder muscles?
