Best Shoulder Workouts

I just got done working my shoulders, and damn do they feel good! It is truly my favorite workout. It is true that you workout your shoulders when you workout your chest and back but if you truly want to have massive shoulders you need to hit them by themselves at least once a week. A couple of my best shoulder workouts are listed  below.

Basic Shoulder Workout

This workout is good for beginners who are just getting started or who are pairing their shoulder workout with another muscle group like chest and shoulders or traps and shoulders. It is also good for someone that may be running short on time.

Sitting dumb bell press – Sit upright on a bench preferably one with a back to it and raise the dumbbells straight above your head. 3 sets of 8 – 10 reps

Sitting barbell press – Sit upright on a bench and lift the barbell straight above your head. 3 sets 8 -10 reps

Lateral Raises –  Stand upright and raise the dumbbells from your side up. Don’t raise them straight in front of you but out to your side. 3 sets 8 – 10 reps

Shoulder Workout For Mass

This shoulder workout is good for bodybuilders that are a little more advanced or looking to build mass to their shoulders. This is always my go to shoulder workout when I have a little more time.

Sitting dumb bell press – Sit upright on a bench preferably one with a back to it and raise the dumbbells straight above your head. 3 sets of 8 – 10 reps

Sitting barbell press – Sit upright on a bench and lift the barbell straight above your head. 3 sets 8 -10 reps

Bent Over Lateral Raises –  Stand upright and bend over and raise the dumbbells from your side out. You can rest your head on the back of a bench that is sitting upright if you choose. Don’t raise them straight in front of you but out to your side. 3 sets 8 – 10 reps

Arnold Press – In a sitting position take 2 dumbbells one in each hand and raise them above your head than bring them down and twist them in front of you. Than twist them back out and back up do 3 sets 8 – 10 times.
