This is a compound exercise which means it targets more than one major muscle. It is always good to start with the more compound exercises (after a warm-up of course!). This targets shoulders, triceps, and upper traps.
Directly affecting the biceps. This is helpful immediately after doing tricep exercises to help them not only to relax some, but also to stretch.
Can be done with either a band or dumbbells as shown here. Make sure that your back is straight, hinging at the hips to lean forward.
Shoulder Front Raise
Shown here both underhanded, and overhand. Underhand will involve bicep and upper chest more, whilst overhand will target a wider area of the shoulder (front and mid deltoid muscles).
Reverse Shoulder Flies
Targets rear delts.
Targets triceps and lower chest. Make sure not to go below 90 to prevent shoulder injuries.
Incline Wall Push-ups
Targets chest and triceps. Be sure to do these on a wall or counter (if you are pregnant) so that your belly does not hang directly beneath you. This is specifically for the safety of your baby as well as yourself!
