This next exercise is a shoulder exercise. It involves the muscles in your deltoids and upper traps - this area over here.

It's a great one if you're trying to battle metabolic syndrome because you can do it at home with just a set of dumbbells and it's relatively easy to learn.

This exercise, the shoulder fly, is good for your muscles and your deltoids and your muscles and your traps. If you've had previous shoulder injury or perhaps a rotator cuff tear be a little bit careful with this one; perhaps don't come up quite so high. Certainly it's not necessary to go any further than vertical.

So there you have a very simple shoulder exercise that you can do at home with just a set of dumbbells. If you want a program that's more customized to your needs, please contact your local kinesiologist, physiotherapist or exercise specailist for a program that's designed for your unique needs.
