A great female fat loss program will include some upper body work. Particularly, you’ll want to add some shoulder work into your routine. My favorite shoulder exercises use dumb bells and include the dumb bell lateral raise, the dumb bell shoulder press and the dumb bell front raise.
Many ladies think that they’ll look like a line backer if they do too much upper body work, especially shoulder work. This is flawed thinking. Women do not have the capacity to put on a ton of muscle and look too masculine. In fact, by adding a bit of muscle, women increase their metabolism for starters and can actually look leaner, firmer and more toned. If you add a bit of muscle to the shoulder, it tends to make your arms much better. Aside from the great functional improvements that you’ll gain from working your shoulders, your arms, back and posture will improve.
