Working your shoulders does more than just help you get great arms. It balances your body so if you have a lower bottom area, your upper body will make it look smaller. It improves your posture, and it sculpts a beautiful back as well!

Overhead press: Holding one dumbbell in each hand, bend your arms and bring your fists up next to your face, almost as if you’re making a football field goal post with your arms. Using your shoulders, straighten your arms above your head and lower slowly back down to the original “field goal” position.
Side shoulder raise: Stand straight with a dumbbell in your right hand. Keeping your arm straight, slowly raise your right arm until it is parallel to the ground and then lower back down.
Reverse dumbbell flys: Stand with your legs slightly bent and your body slightly tilted forward. Hold one dumbbell in each arm and then, using your shoulder and back muscles, lift your arms so that they come up beside you, making sure to keep your elbows slightly bent.
Dumbbell squat to overhead press: Place one dumbbell in each hand and bend your arms so that the dumbbells are beside your ears. Squat down and then push up to a standing position while lifting the dumbbells straight up.
Dumbbell hang pull: Stand straight with a dumbbell in each hand, palms facing toward you. Raise the dumbbells up, making sure your elbows to out to each side.
Dolphin pose: Get into a forearm plank position and then lift your butt up into the air and bring your feet in as closely as you can. Rather than doing 15 reps, try holding this pose for 30 seconds and then lowering down.
