Fast forward to now and I'm proud to rock my wide shoulders/back. Why? They're mine and they aren't going anywhere. Because of my goal to compete next year, I've been working on building boulder shoulders and a wider back. The wider the back, the smaller your waist appears. Hallelujah!
Lawd! Check out the shoulders on Jamie Eason Middleton! Even if you don't favor this type of physique, you have to admire the drive she has to mold herself. This is what I'm working towards.
I wanted to share some of my favorite shoulder workouts with y'all that are great for beginners to experts.
You could easily do these with resistance bands. Bodybuilding.com has a huge exercise guide with videos to help you with form. This is a small muscle group, use lighter weights. And remember, I'm not a personal trainer or certified in anything but my own opinion. Ha! These are notes straight from my training diary. If you attempt any of these exercises and feel pain or extreme discomfort, stop.
I found a picture of me from prom that year but I'm turned to the side. Thanks to people posting "throwback Thursday" pictures on Facebook, I have a photo taken a couple months before my prom dress fiasco.
I'm such a linebacker. LOL.
When was the last time a negative turned into a positive for you?
