Straightforward Shoulder Workout

I’ve been readjusting my focus for development towards different parts of my body every couple of months. It’s important to assess what needs tweaking, perfecting, or even just extra attention every once in a while.

Right now, I’m really into building round, strong shoulders! Maybe it’s just summer calling me, but these hot weather tanks deserve some beautifully capped shoulders. If you are a beginner, here’s a routine that you can give a shot! If you’re more advanced, I hope you’ll take some inspiration to change things up.


So check it out, here’s my shoulder workout for gorgeous well-rounded shoulders!

  • Front Delt Raises – 4 x 10
  • Standing Shoulder Press – 4 x 10
  • Bent Over Rear Lateral Raises – 4 x 10
  • Rear Pec Deck – 4 x 10
  • Side Lateral Raise – 4 x 10
  • Shoulder Shrugs – drop set to failure

Of course, you can play around with the sets and reps. I find for me personally, I get the best results in my shoulders doing higher reps and really exhausting my muscles.

And of course – don’t forget to EAT if you want to GROW!

Happy Lifting!
