Thread: All about shoulders

    All about shoulders

    Shoulders....what are some exercise variations you guys are doing? any tricks?

    This is my basic workout:

    4 sets millitary press (10-12 reps)
    4 sets seated laterial raises (12-15 reps) at times I'll do drop sets of this one
    4 sets front raises (10 reps)
    4 bend over rear flys (15 reps)
    shrugs - depends how I feel (mostly I go heavy on these)

    Can everyone post what they do for shoulders and what seems to work best for you.

    Definitely try doing some of your other lifts first rather than presses first every time.

    Also for rear delts, try staggered bent over raises

    At first I think you should do one more exercises per workout for side delts and I think that for the military press and for the lateral raises you do too much reps.

    For the military press most of the times I use the pyramid sets...start with 12 and then at the end I do as low as 6-8 reps.
    And for the lateral raises I do usually 8-12 reps.

    But anyway if the higher reps works good for you than don't change anything.

    try upright rows.i feel they work well. try some drop sets and super sets to to mix things up and up the intensity too.

    that's not a drop set...it's an ascending set....and i don't understand the question....is it general or we just talking about this or what?

    I do similar ones.

    50 lbs dumbells 5 reps
    35 lbs 10 reps
    20 or 25 lbs 15 reps
    10 lbs 20 reps

    I can only do this one 1-2x a month as it wears me out.

    I have had my fair share of those and I agree. I usually do descending though.

    30's for 12
    20's for 12
    10's for 12


    I just hammer them out with no rest in between.
