This is about shoulder strength but if you are new to the Chicks Training Tips take a few minutes to read the previous newsletters, there’s a lot of great information in there! It’s incredibly beneficial for all the Chicks to be introduced to new movements and concepts for training, implementing these in a regular workout in almost any fashion will create positive change. So re-read the first 15 installments to get a look at all the great movements, VIDEOS have been included.

If you add these in weekly, your shoulders will be stronger and more stable quickly, allowing you to climb harder and stay injury free.There are videos of all movements in previous Chicks Newsletters, and I’ve added videos of movements that are new in the above workouts, and as always if you are unsure how to perform any of these movements get professional instruction.
