I don’t know about you, but I love a good shoulder workout.
I find shoulders one of the more difficult muscle groups to target. However, shoulder workouts are one of my favourite workouts. I’m no muscle expert but, I always find that I can target my traps well (the top part that seems to connect to your neck), and I struggle to target the deltoids, which are the rounded part that connect down to your biceps and triceps. Either way, I still love trying to grow my shoulders! Here’s a good shoulder workout that is sure to target both your traps and deltoids!
Two circuits, perform each exercise in the first circuit for 4 rounds, at your highest reps, then move on to the second circuit. Take minimal rest in between each exercise, and about 1 minute rest in between circuits. Adjust your weight so that it’s challenging, today I did heavier weights with lower reps.
Circuit 1 x4
- Dumbell overhead press (10-12 reps)
- Lateral delt raises (10-12 reps)
- Around the worlds (10-12 reps)
Circuit 2 x4
- Upright row (20 reps, 10 each arm)
- Single arm shoulder press (20 reps, 10 each arm)
- Plate around your head (10 reps)
