Shoulders can make any physique look that much more impressive. A nice boulder look takes time to develop. You have to train hard and focus on the shoulder muscle very carefully or you will not succeed. You have to consider all the different angles for hitting the shoulders and hit all of them equally hard. This is where most people fail.
The Shoulder Shredder
This workout hits all of the shoulder musculature. It is quite an intense workout and something you will want to include in your split on a regular basis.
|Hammer Shoulder Press||4||8-10|
|Seated Side Laterals||4||12-15|
|A1. Seated Front Laterals||3||12-15|
|A2. Seated Rear Laterals||3||12-15|
|Incline Side Lifts||3||12-15|
|Front BB Raise||3||8-10|
We start off this workout with a couple of warm up sets of Hammer Shoulder Presses. We then go into the working sets. 4 sets of moderate weight Hammer Shoulder Presses will get the blood flowing to the shoulders. We then move to seated side laterals. Do high repetitions and 4 sets of these. Your shoulders will be on fire. We then move to a superset of Seated Front Laterals and Seated Rear Laterals. Work though the inevitable burn to force some growth in this area.
The next move in this workout is a killer. It is called Incline Side Lifts. You put an incline bench at a steep angle and then get on it on your side. You use a controlled movement with the dumbbell and raise it up and control it on the way back down. Your thumbs should point towards the floor. This will only require a very light weight so don't get too macho on me.
Now grab a moderately heavy barbell and do front raises with very strict form, shoulders back and chest out. Follow this with some heavy Arnold Presses. You finish off everything with some amazing Face Pulls. Make sure to use a slow and controlled movement. When you get the rope all the way back squeeze your shoulder blades together tightly. Do this on every single repetition.
You will quickly see changes in your shoulders when you train like this. There is an intensity that needs to be met in order to shock those shoulders into a nice growth pattern. Get to it and you will not be sorry.
