Biceps

Biceps are the pair of muscles on the front of the upper arm connecting the shoulder to the elbow. Your biceps are used in everything from turning a doorknob to lifting heavy items. Strengthening your biceps can greatly reduce the "flabby arms" look.

Picture of Shoulders

Shoulders

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the body. However, it is an unstable joint because of the range of motion allowed. This instability increases the likelihood of joint injury, often leading to a degenerative process in which tissues break down and no longer function well.
