Well its Monday again, first day of the week, and the day that sets the pace for the rest of the week. Most are going to he doing chest today, I will be doing shoulders. The top of the taper, boulders,  the 3 headed monster, whatever you call them they need to be done, and done very hard. Defined shoulders gives you the appearance of a solid taper compared with the waist. This is a muscle most do but lack intensity because its not a “fun” muscle to build. I mean you never hear woman say “wow look at the shoulders on that guy”. And for woman its the same. But developed properly there are few muscle groups that build and shape like shoulders.  

The muscles  


Shoulders are made of small groups of muscles simply there are; front, side and rear deltoids, infraspinatus, teres major and minor, rhomboids minor and major and traps. All these muscles get worked on shoulders day. They are a small group in comparison to other muscle groups but just as important for the overall balance of your body.  

The workout.  



Like all other muscle groups shoulders need to be trained from all different angles. Making sure you hit each head properly.  Shoulders are used in almost every exercise we do but as secondary muscles.  Which makes it easy for a lot of people to ship them. If you are serious about fitness and training, no muscle group gets left out, point blank. So ityou’re looking for broader shoulders or sexier more toned shoulders heres what I do, and I know it will work for you.  

Barbell Military press 4 sets of 8-10 reps

Barbell shrugs.4 sets of 8-15 reps

High pulley rear delt rope pulls 4 sets of 8-12 reps

Front lateral raises 3 sets 8-15 reps

Side lateral raises 3 sets of 8-15 reps  

This is a solid shoulder routine for both men and woman. Its all about doing a weight thats challenging for you. Try this out and let your shoulders geow. And remember the bigger your shoulders are the smaller your waist looks.
