Another Reason to Weight Train: Reduce Neck and Shoulder Pain

If you've been relying on cardio as your main form of exercise, it's time you think about stepping it up, especially if you suffer from neck and/or shoulder pain.

Recent research has found that women with work related neck pain (often a result of poor posture from sitting all day) experienced significant relief by regularly practicing strengthening exercises that work the neck and/or upper back. So add resistance exercises such as reverse flies, lateral raises, and rows to your plan and you'll not only tone your upper body, but you could also reap the benefits of being free of aches and pains in the long run.

I live by this. It is the only thing that works for my shoulder and neck tension.

This is so true. I just don't feel the same when I don't do my shoulder strength training. It really does help!
