Strong shoulders are important for many activities as they provide support and strength for the arms and body. Shoulder injuries can be extremely debilitating and limit your range of motion. If you participate in any sort of activity that involves your shoulders, it is essential to be aware of the signs and symptoms of a shoulder injury so you can seek treatment as soon as possible.

If you want to avoid injuring your shoulders, keeping the muscles surrounding the joints strong and flexible is vital. This can be done by regularly exercising and stretching those muscles.

Resistance Bands for Shoulders 

Resistance bands are a great tool to use when exercising, especially for complex joints like shoulders, which are prone to injury. Unlike free weights, resistance bands don't put strain or added pressure on your joints.

Additionally, resistance bands are an excellent option for those looking to prevent injury and grow and strengthen their muscles. They provide resistance at any angle, giving you more flexibility and focusing on specific parts of the body.

Resistance Band Exercises for Shoulder Strength

  • Pass Through 

    Extend your arms in front of you, keeping them straight. Step forward with one leg, then lunge forward with the other, lunging until your back knee nearly touches the ground. Return to the starting position, and repeat.

    Extend your arms in front of you, holding the resistance band with your elbows locked. Slowly lift the band, then lower it behind your back. Return to the starting position by reversing the movement, bringing the band back in front of your body.

  • High Pull

  • Step off the band with your right foot, keeping your left foot on the band. As you step, keep your palms facing downwards (pronated). Keep your shoulders and hips level, and maintain a tall posture. Return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side.

    As you jump outwards, you need to widen your stance while completing a high pull. You should lead with your elbows and pull the band towards your chest. However, as you jump inwards, you should bring your arms back to the neutral position you began in.

  • Front Raise

  • Place your feet on the band, shoulder-width apart. Hold the band with your thighs, keeping your knees close together.

    Grip the band with both hands and place it behind your head. Slowly lift the band until it is in line with your head. Keep your arms straight and knees slightly bent.

  • Standing Side Bend

  • To perform this move, you will need a resistance band. Start by placing the band between your thumb and index finger. Then, lift the band so that your thumb is closer to your index finger than before.

    To do a shoulder raise, start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart and your arms down at your sides. Then, raise your arms straight up until they're parallel to the ground. Once your arms are in this position, lift your shoulders towards your ears, holding the position for a moment before lowering your arms and shoulders back down to the starting position.


    Resistance bands can be a great tool to help build shoulder strength. They are relatively inexpensive and can be easily incorporated into your workout routine. Be sure to start with a light resistance band and gradually increase the resistance as your muscles become stronger.
