Begin with a set of dumbbells. 5 - 7 lbs for women is typically a good weight, and 10 lbs and up for men.
The first of four moves is a Bicep Curl. Hold the DB's with your palms up, and keeping your chest out and elbows back perform a standard curl.
Now rotate the db's so that your palms are out and push upward into a Shoulder or Overhead Press. If you have tendency to feel pain in your shoulder region you can adapt this movement by rotating your palms inward and keeping the db's closer to your body.
The third part of the exercise is the Tricep Extension. Turn your palms, keep your elbows perpendicular to the ceiling, slowly lower the db's down and then press up squeezing the triceps at the top.
Lastly rotate the your hands back out and slowly drop them laterally to your sides in an Eccentric Lateral Raise. Slow and controlled drop of this movement is essential to target and tone those shoulders!
