What does your shoulders routine look like?
- 04-11-2012, 07:44 AM
I do dumbell military press, side raises, front raises, seated reverse raises and cable crossovers!
04-11-2012, 07:48 AM
But my weight on those is really light! Can't seem to get the strength on my shoulders! I try to push more weight but arms give out!

Stop doing shoulders directly or at lest so much.
Clean and press.
Dumbbell shoulder press
Maybe lateral cable raises for burnout:
3 sets of reverse pyramid 6-12-25reps per set.
Do maintenance lifting for the rest of your body while doing this for a few weeks.

TYIs and Standing Barbell Military Presses have done wonders for my shoulders.
04-16-2012, 01:24 PM
Give this a try.. Works for me
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)

Shrink your waist. Bingo....shoulders look bigger.
04-16-2012, 03:50 PM
That sounds like a sick routine! Thankz I'll try it
04-16-2012, 04:31 PM
Very true too. Gives off the illusion that ur shoulders are much wider than they areOriginally Posted by SXIPro

Thanks bro that's what I do for my shoulders I keep it very simple and I hit every part of my shoulders. I only do 3 sets of shrugs cuz I don't need to work my traps out too much so if you do not have that problem just add 1 extra set.Originally Posted by Shak77

Wut a killer workout! I did most of it but kept the smith at 4 sets and couldn't do the machine! I had no power at all to do it but my shoulders never haz felt a pump like thiz! I know if I keep thiz up, I'll have killer shoulderz in no time! Thankz for the advice bro!!!?

I started to focus on shoulders about 3 months ago and I've seen tremendous success with this routine. 5 sets with every exercise.
-seated bb military press
-standing bb military press
Shoulders are the foundation of my workout these days.
04-27-2012, 09:44 AM
I have the same problem, flat shoulders. They have started to grow some this year on this routine, with weight progression on each set.
Seated DB press x5 + drop set
Standing BB press x3
Side laterals x4
Rear Delt flys x4 + drop sets
One arm side laterals
I don't do front delts since they dont seem to need the work like the rest of my shoulder area.

Thats exactly the same as my shoulder routineOriginally Posted by TankShift

I love all of the routines I've read but were forgetting 1 that put cannon balls on Gaspari. Seated side raise. These mutha f^ckas have done wonders for me. My problem is that my Delts dominate most of my Upper body Multi-joint movements. I had to learn to do iso movements like seated side raises and the reverse pec-dec machine. Ronnie Coleman does standing Front-Side-Rear raises super-sets. He goes up the rack none stop. Now that's isolation and complete burnout. Hope this helps. I love being apart of these post fellas.

In my routine I have Side Lateral Raises listed. Just not seated. I like to do them standing instead. Sometimes when I drop set I'll sit down w/ the lighter weightOriginally Posted by Climax510

My shoulder routine has worked extremely well for me.
Sitting DB Press: 3x 12-15
Military Press: 3x 12-15
Standing DB press 3X 8-10
Front,Side,Rear raises 2X10-15 Superset
Upright Rows 2-3X8-10
I do shoulders at a very fast pace. Full range of motion with lighter weight...Don't cheat like 99% of the gym.

My Current routine seems to be working well. Not too little, not too much. I used to blast my shoulders hard as hell, but, they seem to respond better to a little less work.
Standing Military Press - Wendlers 531 scheme
Hang Clean and Press - 4x10
Rear Laterals - 3x12
Side Laterals - 3x12

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
08-16-2012, 08:54 AM
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!

The shoulders can comes big means you will do thumbles every day then only develope the thumbels.
08-25-2012, 02:02 AM
2 seperate shoulder workouts for each week
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!!!

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.
