I know everyone trains shoulders, and everyone has their special little way they do it, so I am not going to bore all us hardcore lifters out there with another delt routine. Instead, I am going to pass on some information I have picked up over the years from people more experienced and with bigger shoulders than I.


Tip One:

    How much are you pressing. Everyone does shoulder presses, but do they do enough? This should be the staple of all delt routines. Now here is a question, are you using just your delts when doing it-or are you tossing in some upper chest and triceps into it? Before you do your pressing movements, try this out.

    A little - wait a minute - no, a lot of pre-exhaustion. Do 3 sets of 20 reps of light weight seated side laterals keeping the back part of the dumbbell higher than the front part of it. Do this slow and controlled and try to force as much blood into the delt a possible.

    Did I Mention?
    The biggest part of training delts is to force so much blood into them so fast that they look and feel like they are going to explode. Your nose should start running and your toes should be cold because all the blood should be in your "DYNAMIC DELTS"

    After you knock out your 3 sets of that, now go ahead and roll through your pressing exercises.


Tip Two:

    How many of you just press the weight up when doing shoulder presses. Yea I know everyone knows how to try and isolate their delts when doing shoulder presses. But how many of you ever thought that the different ways you can manipulate your elbows when pressing will have a gigantic effect on the way your shoulders are involved in the movement.

    Try it, do some presses with your elbows flared out, some in front of you and some halfway between. Write this tip down and take it to the gym with you, see what happens. If you want/need additional guidance in this, send an email my way.

Tip Three:

    I used to be able to walk into the gym, fall asleep and do my delt routine. Do I have a point? Yes. There are so many different exercises that can be used to stimulate delt growth. Don't go in the gym and do the same workout over and over. Experiment little bit.

    If you do front raises, don't always do them standing, lie on an incline stomach down, and do a couple sets. Then flip over with your back down on it and do a couple sets. Same way with side laterals, lie on an incline bench on your side and raise it. Be creative, be a freak. But remember whatever you do be sure to use great form and get a good squeeze to get all the blood up in there.

Tip Four:

    Damn your delts look awesome from the front. Boy I wish I had those. But, you look like my girlfriend from the side the way they slope off in the back. Be sure to give equal if not more attention to the rear delts. They are SO crucial in attaining that championship physique you are working so hard for. I know you are probably saying,

    "Yeah, but dude, they get a lot of work
    when I do my back."

    Well then you suck at working your back. You should be able to isolate your back in your exercises so that your rear delts only receive a little stimulation, just enough to make them grow little more.
