PIN Shoulder Workout with Resistance Bands
Are you missing the gym right now and totally bored at home?
I know that I sure am! I’m willing you bet you’re also missing all the awesome equipment at the gym and thinking it’s gonna be awhile until you can get a good workout in right?
WRONG? you don’t need a ton of equipment to get a good workout in!
I mean, just ask the women in the Body, Mind and Soul Fat Loss program. They’re feeling the burn at home!

Anyway, Learning to add strength training to your life is KEY to healthy, long-term fat loss. Did you know that?
Lifting weights burns more calories after you’re done exercising!
Plus, having muscle on your body burns more calories at rest too!
If you’re not strength training, you’re not revving your metabolism up for life!
Adding muscle to your body is one of the best kept secrets for having a faster metabolism, and being able to eat more while still losing body fat!
So, I wanted to start you off with a little at home shoulder workout that you only need a band! These bands are amazing and are always great to have on hand! I also shared some at home butt exercises too!
Your Shoulder Workout With Resistance Bands
❌Standing upright rows – Make sure to keep your back straight and chest up and use your side deltoids for the lift.
❌Banded Laterals – You want to keep “barbie arms here” meaning a slight bend and keep them fixed like that. A tip I always give is to pretend like you’re hitting open a door with your shoulder – this will get you the proper activation.
❌Banded Face Pulls – Keep your scapula depressed and drive your elbows back and out as opposed to straight back for more rear delt activation.
❌Banded Front Raise – Again, keep your chest out and your back straight. Don’t lift the band past shoulder height.
Do this in a circuit style, so back to back for a total of 3 sets, resting for 1-2 minutes after each set. If you can only do 1 or 2 sets to start, that’s great too. Just work your way up.
Do it AMRAP style (which means as many reps as possible for each set)
With all of these go nice and slow – faster isn’t better!
Really feel the contractions 💪🏻 and constant tension!
You can do this as a stand-alone circuit, but I highly reccomend putting this into an upper body day or a full body day or a “push” day!
Always remember, the way to build muscle is with “progressive overload.” This means you need to progressively overload your muscles week to week. This could look like another rep, heavier weight, a slower movement with more tension or even less rest between sets. There are lots of ways to do it as long as you DO IT. It’s the key to muscle growth!
