Resistance Band Fitness For Bullet-Proof Shoulders!
Are you worried about shoulder health, then let’s talk about resistance band fitness for bullet-proof shoulders! Using resistance bands to work your shoulder is not only a wonderful and portable way of getting a workout but resistance band training is a great way to help strengthen both the shoulders and scapula muscles while reducing shoulder pain without the need for dumbbells or other gym equipment.
Resistance bands can be used to workout any body part but this post will provide you with Shoulder specific band work.
Not only are resistance bands great for strengthening your muscles, but they are also beneficial rehabilitation following an injury, simply changing up an existing program or as a means of preventing shoulder injury.
So for stronger shoulders and back, give our banded workout a try…adding it into an existing program or doing it on its own just as a change. Remembering to give Custom Bodies a little love by following us on our YouTube Channel

If you are a beginner, I recommend starting with one set of each band exercise. Then in your second week up it to 3 sets of each exercise. At an experienced level, this band workout can be done as part of the warm up, between set work, as an accessory movement, or at the end of the workout. You can split them up or do all three sets at once. It doesn’t really matter. The only stipulation I have is don’t do all three sets prior to a heavy bench or press workout. It will fatigue your stabilizers too much. Instead, you can do one set as part of your warm up and the other two after the heavy bench session.
Usually, you’ll notice much improved strength and mobility in just a few days and significant improvement in your overall shoulder health after a few weeks.
