Shoulder Shrug

Shoulder Shrug is a good exercise developing strength in shoulders, neck and trapezius muscles.

How to do Shrug properly:
1. Stand straight with a good posture hip-width apart
2. Lift your chest and inhale (keeping arms straight), shrug shoulders (upward direction) towards ears.
3. Hold 2 seconds
4. Exhale and bring shoulders down (do not fully relax).
5. Repeat 10-12 repetitions.

Having a bad posture can affect many muscles in the body. Office workers develop tension in neck, shoulders and upper back. Shoulder Shrugs are a good choice of exercise for relieving these tensions.
