Arm Circles

None Shoulder: Rear Shoulder: Side Shoulder: Front

This exercise focuses on working the entire shoulder 'girdle' and makes an excellent warm-up before any resistance or weight training involving the shoulders.


  1. Start by standing straight with your feet shoulder width apart. Your arms should be straight out to the sides, so that your body forms a T.

  2. Slowly start by making small circular motions with both arms on either side. After a few repetitions of small circles, enlarge your circles and do the same amount of reps.

  3. Your end position should look the same as the start position. Breathe in and out, and release arms to the side of the body.

  4. Special Tip: Try changing the size of arm circles for different reps. can not be held responsible for any injuries which may occur as a result of these exercises, advice or recipes displayed on this website.
