Get Swole: Cory Gregory's 16-Week Muscle Building Trainer - Day 53

Today's pyramid-based shoulder session will help you build dense delts and thick traps. Keep your form tight and hoist some heavy weight!

Back | Main | Next

The Pyramid Phase shoulders session is an unrelenting series of presses, raises, and heavy shrugs. It's engineered to help you build round, full delts and towering traps. The presses add overall size and strength, while the raises give your shoulders cannonball curves and width.

Proper form is particularly important through today's workout, especially on the standing military press. Keep your body tight during this exercise and flex your glutes to protect your lower back.

Remember to add weight every time you drop reps, and record how much you lift during this and every workout. You need to lift more from workout to workout to see consistent progress, so keep an accurate training log. Get in the gym and get swole.
