  • Shoulder Exercises With Standing Side Flies

    Standing shoulder flies to the side involve targeting the lateral deltoids, which are the muscles on the sides of your shoulders. Here's a step-by-step guide to performing this exercise correctly:

    1. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Maintain a neutral spine and engage your core muscles by sucking your stomach in.

    2. Hold a dumbbell in each hand, with your palms facing your body. Start with lighter weights and gradually increase as you become more comfortable with the exercise.

    3. Keep your chest lifted and your shoulders relaxed. It's important to maintain proper posture throughout the movement.

    4. Begin the exercise by initiating the movement from your shoulders. Keep your arms slightly bent and raise them out to the sides, in line with your shoulders. Imagine you're trying to touch your elbows to the ceiling.

    5. As you lift your arms, focus on maintaining a square pelvis position, meaning your hips should stay aligned and not rotate or tilt.

    6. Continue raising your arms until they are approximately parallel to the floor or slightly below shoulder height. This is the point where your arms are at about 90 degrees from your body.

    7. Hold this position for a brief pause, squeezing your shoulder muscles to engage them fully.

    8. Slowly lower the weights back down to the starting position, maintaining control and resisting any momentum.

    9. Repeat the exercise for the desired number of repetitions, typically 8 to 12 reps per set.

    Remember, it's crucial to use a weight that challenges you but still allows you to maintain proper form. If you find yourself straining or using excessive momentum, consider reducing the weight to ensure you're performing the exercise correctly and effectively.


    You can either do one arm at a time or you can do two arms together. And you always wanna be thinking about picking a weight that you can do anywhere between 10 to 20 reps at a time, and you can do it once a day or once every other day.

    But remember with shoulder flies, you wanna be always very, very careful of your shoulders so don’t grip the weight too tight, have a nice loose grip on the hands. And what that’ll really allow you to use is the upper shoulder muscle instead of using your wrist and your hand. Presenter:  Kinesiologist,

  • Standing Shoulder Shrugs

    Local Physiotherapist: Standing shoulder shrugs are a great exercise to improve the positioning and mobility of the pelvis while engaging the upper shoulder and back muscles. To perform the exercise correctly, follow these steps:

    1. Start by positioning your feet shoulder-width apart, with your buttocks pushed back and your knees slightly bent.
    2. Hold a weight, such as a dumbbell, in each hand, but keep your grip relaxed and loose.
    3. Lower your shoulders down, focusing on creating a downward movement.
    4. Once you achieve a good starting position with your shoulders down, begin to lift them up.
    5. Use your upper shoulder and upper back muscles to raise your shoulders as high as possible.
    6. Remember to keep your hands loose throughout the exercise, avoiding a tight grip on the dumbbells.
    7. Perform the shrugging motion in a steady and controlled manner.
    8. Aim for 10 to 15 repetitions of the exercise.

    This exercise can be particularly effective for loosening up the neck and engaging the back muscles. By keeping your hands loose and not gripping the weights tightly, you allow your back muscles to work more effectively.
