A good exercise to tone the shoulders is the single-leg dumbbell scaption: 2-arm. This exercise will also tone the arms and help strengthen the muscles that stabilize your shoulder joint, making it great for keeping your shoulders healthy as well as strong. Use the technique described below to complete this exercise. Stand on one leg, making sure to keep the foot straight. To start, draw-in your belly button to help support your spine. Hold a dumbbell in each hand with the arms at the sides of the body. Next, with the thumbs pointed up raise both arms at 45-degree angle to the side of the body until both hands reach eye level. Try not to not shrug your shoulders or arch your lower back. Hold briefly at the top, and then slowly return the arms to the side of the body. As an alternative, this exercise can be performed standing on two legs or while laying face down on a stability ball.
