What Exercises Are Good to Build Muscle Around the Collarbone? : Upper Body Fitness

Hello there. My name is Michael DeGood. And this is exercises to build up the muscles that surround the collarbone and um, the muscles that surround the collarbone. What we’re generally looking at are the upper pectoral muscles, the front, um, a deltoid, the medial deltoid, and the trapezius muscle. So I’m going to walk you through some exercises that will help build up those muscles. Those exercises are going to be incline dumbbell bench presses. They’re going to be shrugs for the trapezius muscle. They’re going to be front raises with dumbbells for the anterior deltoids, and then side raises for the lateral deltoid muscles. So for the incline dumbbell bench press, you’re going to want to have yourself an inclined bench to start. Um, you’ll start with the dumbbells at chest level. Uh, you’ll inhale to start and as you exhale, you’ll press the dumbbells all the way up to extend the arms as far as you can and then control and bring the dumbbells all the way back down to the chest.

And repeat for the shrugs, you want to have two dumbbells in both hands at your sides. You’ll shrug your shoulders all the way up as far as you can under the ears. Pause for a beat, and then returned back to the starting position. Under controlled. With this exercise, you want to be sure that you’re not rotating your shoulders forward or back. Make sure that your shoulders go straight up and straight back down. For the front raises. You’ll want to have a dumbbells in both hands. You’ll want to go the light on the dumbbells. The shoulder muscles are smaller muscles and it doesn’t take a whole lot of weight to really get these muscles activated with two dumbbells, um, you’ll keep your arms straight. The dumbbells will be resting, um, in front of your thighs and with straight arms. You lift the dumbbells up in front of your body to their parallel, to your collarbone pause, and then lowering them down under control for the lateral raises. You want to have dumbbells by your sides, palms facing in. You’ll lift the dumbbells up to the parallel, to your shoulders, pause for a beat, and then lower them down to the starting position under control. Once again, my name is Michael D. Good, and that was exercises to build the muscles that surround the collarbone.
