This next exercise is a shoulder exercise.

It involves the muscles in your upper traps and deltoids. It’s a great one if you have diabetes because it’s simple to do, and you can do it at home with just a set of dumbbells. This exercise – the shoulder fly – is good for your muscles in your deltoids and 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 really 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 specialist for a program that’s designed for your unique needs.
