Shoulder Exercises With Resistance Bands


Your shoulders are the gateway to your upper body. Build your shoulders with the best exercises, using the best resistance, elastic resistance! Do all of the classic and most effective movements like Shoulder Press, Lateral Raise, Reverse flys and more. See the exercises below:

 

 

Standing Front Raise

Description: Add Standing front shoulder raise with clip exercise band sets to your routine if you want bigger, stronger shoulders. You will be able to work the muscle against its function (raising the arms) but at an accelerated level. Unlike other forms of resistance, bands create progressive tension, so you actually get more tension at the end of the range of motion. This exercise works!

Area Targeted: Front Shoulder

 

 

 

Anchor Overhead Press

Description: Anchor Overhead Shoulder Press with clip exercise band sets is one of the best exercises that you can do to build the front and side shoulder. It is a slight variation from regular bands shoulder press, but makes a big difference. Many people prefer this exercise with bands because you do not have to stand on the bands and can stand with feet even instead of staggered.

Area Targeted: Front & Side Shoulder

 

 

 

External Rotation (Side)

Description: Working your Rotator Cuff muscles from all angles will insure that they are strengthened to endure super hard upper body training, or just the normal tasks that are required in daily life. External Rotation (Side) with clip exercise band sets will safely and effectively strengthen your Rotators for situations where your arm is required to push out to the side.

Area Targeted: Rotator Cuff

 

 

 

External Rotation (Up)

Description: Work your Rotator Cuff muscles (the ones that are responsible for shoulder health) by doing External (Up) Rotation with clip exercise band sets. This is the same exact exercise and resistance that you will perform at top physical therapy centers to maintain and build shoulder health. Keep your shoulders healthy right at home or on the road.

Area Targeted: Rotator Cuff

 

 

 

High Row (Low)

Description: High Row with clip exercise band sets at a low anchor point targets the Posterior Deltoids (Rear shoulder). You will want to do this exercise to keep your shoulders balanced. By placing the anchor at a low point, your feet will be anchored more firmly on the floor, which mitigates the tension of the bands pulling you forward.

Area Targeted: Rear Shoulder

 

 

 

High Row (Mid)

Description: High Row with clip exercise band sets anchored at a middle position targets the Posterior Deltoid (Rear Shoulder). It may be a small muscle, but it is super important to work and develop because it keeps the shoulder joint balanced. Bands work perfectly for this exercise because they are easy on the shoulder joint, but work the muscle super hard with increasing tension.

Area Targeted: Rear Shoulder

 

 

 

Internal Rotation (Down)

Description: Internal Rotation with a down motion targets the Rotator Cuff muscles (Rotators) which are greatly responsible for shoulder health. Performing this exercise with clip exercise band sets is superior for 3 reasons: it creates resistance from the right angle, places more tension on the muscle at the optimal time, and does not produce momentum (which can lead to injury).

Area Targeted: Rotator Cuff

 

 

 

Internal Rotation (Side)

Description: If this Internal Rotation exercise with clip exercise band sets looks familiar it is because it is used by the majority of Physical Therapists to strengthen the rotator cuff muscles (the ones responsible for shoulder health). Bands are perfect for this exercise because they are tough on the muscles and easy on the joints. Keep your shoulders healthy and strong!

Area Targeted: Rotator Cuff

 

 

 

Lying Front Raise

Description: Lying Front Shoulder Raise with clip exercise band sets is a top exercise for working the Anterior Deltoid (Front Shoulder). As with many of the lying exercises, you will eliminate the body movement that can occur in a standing position. So, you are left with total isolation of the intended muscle. Pair that with progressive resistance and you have one super effective exercise!

Area Targeted: Front Shoulder

 

 

 

Lying Lateral Raise

Description: Lying lateral Shoulder Raise with clip exercise band sets is an incredible exercise for working the Lateral Deltoids (Side Shoulder). It is in many ways superior to standing lateral raise since performing this exercise in a lying positing forces the body to stabilize. This stabilization helps isolate the targeted muscles. Better isolation - better results.

Area Targeted: Side Shoulder

 

 

 

Overhead Press

Description: Overhead Shoulder Press with clip exercise band sets is a classic exercise that will build your front and side shoulder. Bands are better for this exercise because they create Progressive Linear Resistance. In other words the movement becomes more difficult as you press up, thus placing more resistance at the optimal time. Get ready to transform!

Area Targeted: Front & Side Shoulder

 

 

 

Reverse Fly

Description: Reverse fly with exercise, clip exercise band sets targets and works the Posterior Deltoid (Rear Shoulder). The Rear shoulder takes your arms straight back, when they are in an up position. You will able to recreate this motion but against super smooth elastic resistance. This exercise feels great as it works the often neglected rear shoulder, while also stretching out the chest.

Area Targeted: Rear Shoulder

 

 

 

Seated High Row

Description: Seated High Row with clip exercise band sets is a great exercise for isolating the Posterior Deltoid (Rear Shoulder). This exercise has advantages over the standing version, because your lower body is stabilized and cannot assist with the movement. You also get the benefits of elastic Progressive resistance.

Area Targeted: Rear Shoulder

 

 

 

Standing Lateral Raise

Description: Standing Lateral Shoulder Raise with clip exercise band sets is the go to exercise for building the Lateral (Side) shoulder. The Lateral Deltoid takes the arm up from straight down, to straight out to the the side. The shoulders are a delicate joint. Using elastic resistance will not only enable you to work the muscle without momentum (safer) but harder with progressive resistance.

Area Targeted: Side Shoulder
