Shoulders And Traps Introduction

Shoulders aren't just a simple set of muscles; they're a complex bodily construction-an intricate collection of joints, bones, nerves and muscles that helps support and protect the upper back and neck. And while they're at it, they help to give your arms a tremendous range of motion. The major players in your shoulder muscles are the trapezius and the deltoid. When you raise or rotate your shoulders, you're using the trapezius, These muscles also keep your neck strong and well- supported. Your delts help your arms with lifting and pulling. At the same time, they cover your rotator cuff, a band of muscles and tendons that engulf the shoulder joints and are key to your mobility.  Since the shoulders are so complex, we have several exercises in this section that will cover every aspect of them.  In more simplified terms the shoulders are comprised of three parts, the front deltoids, the side deltoids and the rear deltoids.
