Weekly Wednesday Workout: Lateral Shoulder Raise with Abs Twist


Unlike most of the exercises I share on the Weekly Wednesday Workout, this one is actually brand new to me! I love it however because it does double duty. Double duty exercises are really great because they target more than one trouble spot:


As you can see this move works on the shoulders and the abs. Working on the abs requires that you hit all muscles including the obliques. The great part about this is that you can tighten your abs while executing the move for even more results.

I can’t wait to try this one out in the gym! I will look so *smart*. LOL

Have you ever tried this move? What is your favorite fitness move that does double duty??

Brand new to me! I like a burpee with a T stand option!

I saw you on FB, are you blogging every day this month for the blog challenge?

Ooo. That’s a nice move. I haven’t seen that one either. Why oh why was I not born with the exotic foreign voice? LOL!

Okay, I’m totally psyched because I CAN ACTUALLY DO THIS ONE!! Usually these exercise are things that would cause me to collapse or face plant ( or both)…but I can actually do this–even at my house!
Also, I want her abs. I could twist myself into oblivion and never get them, but they are glorious. –Lisa

I am doing this, it looks easy-ish and will definitely do the job. This is the kind of stuff I need to tighten my core and and tone my arms. Thanks for sharing.
