I've been workin out for bout 2 yrs but can't seem to get big shoulders! Anyone got any suggestions?
What does your shoulders routine look like?
I do dumbell military press, side raises, front raises, seated reverse raises and cable crossovers!
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.
"above all else, WILLINGNESS is the most effective at reaching your goals"
Ok thankz! I'll try that! I'll let u know how it workz!
I do my rotator cuff almost every 3rd dayz too!
TYIs and Standing Barbell Military Presses have done wonders for my shoulders.
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.
That sounds like a sick routine! Thankz I'll try it
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!!!?
Glad you likes it man. Good sh*t!Originally Posted by Shak77
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.
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
