Blue Ivy Carter, the talented 11-year-old daughter of music power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z, recently made a memorable appearance during her mother’s Renaissance World Tour stop in Paris. Dressed in a silver jumpsuit reminiscent of her mother’s outfit, Blue Ivy showcased her dance skills during the dance breakdown of “My Power.”

Beyoncé’s daughter was certainly appreciated by the crowd, because everyone erupted into applause, showing appreciation for the young star’s skills and stage presence.
Blue Ivy’s grandmother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, couldn’t contain her joy and took to Instagram to share her excitement. She posted a video of Blue Ivy’s performance, expressing her pride in her granddaughter. It wasn’t the first time Blue Ivy showcased her musical talents alongside her mother. Earlier this year, she joined Beyoncé for a duet of their song “Brown Skin Girl” during a performance in Dubai. There, Blue Ivy confidently sang her part of the Grammy Award-winning song while Beyoncé delivered her powerful vocals.
Blue Ivy Is a Rising Star
Blue Ivy’s performance earned her a writing credit for “Brown Skin Girl” and marked her first entry onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour, her first solo concert outing in seven years, started in Stockholm, Sweden, and features tracks from her latest studio album, Renaissance. The setlist also includes beloved hits from Beyoncé’s career, such as “Crazy in Love,” “Partition,” and “Love on Top.” Both Jay-Z and Blue Ivy were present to show their support for Beyoncé on the opening night of the tour.

As the daughter of two music icons, her emergence as a performer is met with excitement and anticipation, making her a rising star in her own right. With her unwavering fearlessness and undeniable talent, Blue Ivy is undoubtedly carving her path in the entertainment industry, leaving a lasting impression at every performance.
TikTok is full of inspirational and helpful videos focusing on training and effective workouts. Recently, many TikTok trainers have suggested to their viewers to cut front deltoid training out of their workout routine. Why is it suddenly better to avoid a workout that’s been done for years and what do experts have to say about this suggestion?
What Are the Front Deltoids
A deltoid is a triangular muscle that covers the shoulder joint. It consists of the front, lateral, and posterior deltoid. Their purpose is to raise the arm away from the body. The anterior or front deltoid draws the arm inward to rotate the shoulder joint. Given the important purpose of this muscle group, one would think that training them for improved strength is important. But, according to TikTok trainers and industry professionals, there are reasons why these muscles rarely make the cut in a well-rounded workout routine.
Experts Weigh in On the Advice of TikTok Trainers
Several experts, including Ebenezer Samuel C.S.C.S., Men’s Health fitness director, decided to weigh in on the advice TikTok trainers have recently been giving regarding front deltoid exercises. Samuel agrees with the overall message, saying that certain exercises could be counterproductive depending on a person’s body type and exercise goals, but that training experts on social media such as TikTok should find a way to communicate more clearly with their audience.
Dr. John Rusin, injury prevention and sports performance specialist, agrees that front delt exercises are somewhat antiquated and could be risky.
Proper Ways to Work Out the Shoulders
The truth is that the deltoids work hard to stabilize arm movements with any type of exercise, be it presses, biceps curls, moving the elbows behind the torso for back exercises, and more. That way, the deltoids get worked out along the way, so if one’s goal is an overall balanced workout, isolating this muscle group is unnecessary. If one is focusing on building up shoulders for competitive bodybuilding, some dedicated deltoid exercises might be called for.
