    Works for me without fail as well

  5. I know its an older thing but I wanted to really push my shoulders and had amazing results doing fascia stretching to end the workout on a shoulder press machine 7x8 to 12, alternate with press one week and rear delt row machine the next, really push it and makes easier to controll movement so your only moving enough to keep tension on shoulders not activating triceps or biceps as much, using a neutral grip. Put a giant pump and really helps feow

  6. Im in the same position as you i change it up sometimes but my regular workout is:

    Seated smith machine military press 4x8-10
    Lateral raises 3x10-12
    Front raises 3x10-12
    Cable lateral raises 1x Max (each arm)
    Rear delts raises 3x10-12
    Up right row 3x10-12

    Since i changed it up it helped a lot!

  7. The shoulders can comes big means you will do thumbles every day then only develope the thumbels.

  8. 2 seperate shoulder workouts for each week

    workout 1:
    Standing Military Press - 3-5 sets 8-12 reps *not about weight just good form and pump*

    Heavy Lateral DB Raises - 3-5 sets 8-12 reps ABOUT WEIGHT!! THROW THEM BITCHES UP !!

    Heavy Front Raises - 3-5 sets 8-xxx reps *Start out alternating arms after hitting rep range or failure. use momentum and throw both them bitches up till failure aim for 10 more!*

    Face Pulls - 3-4 sets 15-30 reps. * BURN BABY BURN !!! I like using a single d handle using both arms same time.


    workout 2 :
    Seated DB Shoulder Press - 4-5 sets 8-12 reps.

    Heavy Db Rear Delt Raises- 3-4 sets 8-12 reps. *throw them bitches out 2 the side or use form..whatever you feelin that day*

    Light Db Lateral raises - 3 sets 12-20 reps *Use light weight 10-25 lbs* Ronnie coleman style motion, use momentum, twist with wrist and some elbow* ALL ABOUT FEEL!! NOT WEIGHT!!

    Cable Lateral Raises (both hands) - 3 sets 12-20 reps * Now do same motion as with previous exercise using both arms!!* (guess you could also think of it as machine lateral but not exactly...think Ronnie Coleman Style Laterals!!!

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  10. The biggest thing that's helped for me is doing clean and presses at the beginning of shoulder workouts. Highly anabolic movement, you use almost every muscle you've got.

  11. If your gym has an UBE machine (you may have seen the in rehabilitation places) then that would be a great way for you to finish every workout! Especially on a shoulder training day!
    You can switch your rotational grip to focus on emphasizing different angles of the delts. Add resistance and keep your core tight! Build nice round shoulders in no time!

  12. If you don't do barbell military, ad it in. I alternate front and behind the back variations workout to workout. Lateral raises and rear delt raises should also be a staple in any workout IMO

  14. Another nice addition is adding some decline pushups (feet behind up about 24"above ground) in between sets. I like to also use the seasted fly to work those tough angles and do front and rears. Helps bring in the shape.

    1) Smith or HS Shoulder Press - 5 sets
    2) DB side raises - 4 sets
    3) Rear Delt DB Raises or Reverse Pec Dec - 4 sets
    4) DB Front Raises - 4 sets
    5) Shrugs - 3 sets (I have overly developed traps)
    6) Machine Shoulder Press - FST*7 (7 sets 30-40 sec rest)
    Love a good FST-7 workout
    After a year off, I'm back

  16. FST-7 Workout is one of the best workout so use FST-7.

  17. I agree, I read about it and tried it and I'm gonna be using it every 5 weeks or so.

    The advice I give everyone about FST7 is ppl hear that it's 7 sets with 30-40sec rest and they think you have to go light. Lets say you usually do 4 sets for a particular exercise the weight that should be used when performing FST7 is a weight you normally do 2nd to last set (3rd set)

    Gotcha.

  20. What has worked for me... Heavy shoulder press and very heavy one arm shoulder dumbbell side raise!! Get the weight up, light weight and more reps are a wast of time on your shoulders! They are a big muscle and get worked all the time, so light weight is a joke if you want shoulder size.

  24. heavy dbell side raises one arm at a time sure helped me build shoulders

    Is it okay to have more of a 45 degree bend in your elbows going heavy like that? I've been doing them heavy and I get a good pump but I feel like my form isn't right

  26. Well, from an empirical point of view, there was a recent study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research in Oct 2012 which actually measured which was the best exercise for shoulder stimulation. They hooked up electrodes to the shoulder muscles and measured the electrical activity that was stimulated in response to each exercise. Dumbbell standing presses created the highest EMG reading. Barbell standing presses was second. The authors attributed this finding to theory that because dumbbell standing presses were the least stable or in other words required the most stabilization, it therefore created the most electrical stimulation. However, the 1 RM was lower than standing barbell presses, but thats ok, it just means you don't have to try and use as much weight to get more stimulation.

    Hope this helps. Seems a lot of people here are already incorporating the most electrically stimulating shoulder exercises.

    Here is the abstract:

    Effects of body position and loading modality on muscle activity and strength in shoulder presses.

    Abstract
    ABSTRACT: Little is known about the effect of performing upper-body resistance exercises with dumbbells versus barbells and standing versus seated. Therefore, this study sought to compare electromyogram activity (EMG) and one-repetition maximum (1-RM) in barbell and dumbbell shoulder presses performed seated and standing. 15 healthy men volunteered for 1-RM and EMG testing with a load corresponding to 80% of the 1-RM. EMG was measured in the anterior, medial and posterior deltoids, and biceps and triceps brachii. The following EMG differences or trends were observed: For deltoid anterior: ∼11% lower for seated barbell versus dumbbell (P=0.038), ∼15% lower in standing barbell versus dumbbell (P<0.001), ∼8% lower for seated versus standing dumbbells (P=0.070); For medial deltoid, ∼7% lower for standing barbell versus dumbbells (P=0.050), ∼7% lower for seated versus standing barbell (P=0.062), 15% lower for seated versus standing dumbbell (P=0.008); For posterior deltoid: ∼25% lower for seated versus standing barbell (P<0.001), ∼24% lower for seated versus standing dumbbells (P=0.002); For biceps, ∼33% greater for seated barbell versus dumbbells (P=0.002), 16% greater for standing barbell versus dumbbell (P=0.074), ∼23% lower for seated versus standing dumbbells (P<0.001); For triceps, ∼39% greater for standing barbell versus dumbbells (P<0.001), ∼20% lower for seated versus standing barbell (P=0.094). 1-RM strength for standing dumbbells was ∼7% lower than standing barbell (P=0.002) and ∼10% lower than seated dumbbells (P<0.001). In conclusion, the exercise with the greatest stability requirement (standing and dumbbells) demonstrated the highest neuromuscular activity of the deltoid muscles, although this was the exercise with the lowest 1-RM strength.

  28. I think heavy sets with dumbells is the best recipe for big shoulders you cant go wrong with power shrugs either.
    I think using a rack is the best way to do shrugs. I love doing shrugs on the machine too(bench press machine)
    Either way you do them is effective and shoulder raises is a great exercise to do for shoulders. All are good
