It's time for a little bit of real talk. Have you been avoiding your shoulder exercises? We're willing to bet that some of you have been. We get it -- you don't want to look too muscular or bulky. But, the thing is, building strong shoulders can help you achieve the lean, toned look you're after! But more than helping you look good, strong shoulders can help you avoid joint injury and even improve your posture! The shoulder joint has the widest range of motion in the body which, unfortunately, makes it a rather unstable joint. By strengthening the muscles that surround the shoulder, you take the work out of the joint and put it in the muscle which decreases your risk of serious injury. Here are just a few reasons to work your shoulders: original-dblatrauseinfo-1 You can hit all the major sweet spots in your shoulders by doing a lateral raise with a front raise and deadlift. It is not a difficult move but you will definitely feel it! dumbbellvestcombo This move requires minimal equipment and has a huge impact. To get the most from this exercise, you will need your BodyRock weighted vest and a set of dumbbells.

Get yours here! Are you ready for the lateral raise with a front raise and deadlift? https://vimeo.com/192126156 Add this move to your regular routine or add it to your arm or back workout. Aim for 50 seconds on with 10 seconds of rest for 2 or 3 rounds. Use a weight that challenges you but is light enough that you can last the full interval. Begin by standing, feet shoulder width apart, knees slightly bent, a dumbbell in each hand, resting at your sides. With your palms facing your body, lift the weights straight out to the side, until you reach shoulder height. Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position. Rotate your hands so your palms are facing the back of your body and lift the weights straight out in front of your body until you reach shoulder height. Slowly lower the weights back down. With your palms still facing the back of your body, bend at the waist, lowering the weights until your back is parallel to the floor. Slowly come back up and repeat from the beginning. Remember to keep a soft bend in your elbows throughout these movements. Will you be adding this move to your routine?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
