What Are The Best Shoulder Exercises For Strength And Function?

  1. Are your shoulders strong and functional?
  2. What shoulder exercises are you implementing to build strong injury resistant shoulders?
  3. Are you looking to transform your fitness and strength?

Well when it comes to training shoulders most articles I typically see for this seem to recommend training tactics that emphasize more aesthetics in terms of the approach to training the shoulders.

Aesthetics are great, but shoulder function is better. Besides the aesthetics will come if your shoulder joint can exhibit mobility and stability the way it should be able to in the first place. Form always follows function…not the other way around!

Read and apply.

One great truth about strength is that it has different faces. I mean who’s stronger…Is it the guy that can squat 700 lbs., or is it the guy that has a 40 inch vertical? Obviously these are both great examples of strength, but the point is that BOTH are very different. Being different is what makes these types of strength so special. Aside from being different both do demonstrate an impressive level of power.
