    Best training for promoting shoulder growth


    I currently do these:

    Shoulder Press
    Upright rows
    lateral raises

    3 set of each @ 10 reps, heavy


    I would like to hear from others how to make them bad boys grow and respond

    I did have shoulder reconstruction twice I was a bad girl, but now Im doing good and lifting heavy.

    Hmmmmm....

    How long have you been doing this shoulder routine? Also, you said that you train heavy but your getting 10 reps?? In my mind 10 reps does not equal heavy....Do you press with dumbells or barbells?

    Actually I go up in weight when I get to 10 reps, I start at 6 reps, I find a weight I can only get six reps from, then each workout I try for more till I get to ten reps then I move up, but a few things I stay there for a few weeks because the next highest weight is maybe still too heavy for 6 reps.

    Here is my workout from today:

    I didn't start gaining any real shoulder width until I began doing heavy (5-6 reps) drop sets on dumbell presses and moderate weight (8-10 reps) supersets on front and side lateral raises.....

    I do side and front laterals and bent over latereal raises. Use the cable machine for inner and outer rotator exercises. in front and behind the neck military presses. It seems that using drop sets for the presses gets the most result, for me.
    Bent over cable raises(not sure of the proper term)

    Try doing a superset of dips and upright rows. I've done this superset every couple of weeks to help blast my shoulders/delts/upper arms. It seems to work very well.
