Day 64: Shoulder lifts, rolls, swings

Shoulder exercises are designed to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. They're great for warming up before a round of golf or before getting ready to do more strenuous exercises. They're also excellent as a little get-away-from-work relief. No special equipment is needed. You can do these exercises sitting down or standing up. If you remain seated, pull your chair away from your desk so you have some room to swing your arms.
 
Lifts:
Step 1: Lift both shoulders up toward your ears while your arms are relaxed at your side.
Step 2: Let shoulders drop back to normal position.
Step 3: Repeat 10 times.
 
Rolls:
