Shoulders Muscles - Weak Point Training

Shoulders Muscles - Weak Point Training

If shoulders muscles are a weak point in your physique, adjust your training so that you do more sets and more exercises for shoulders muscles, and use as many of the Shocking Principles as possible to work that area with maximum intensity.

We like to use the stripping method for shoulders. With dumbbells, you start with heavy weights and move on down the rack; with machines presses or cable laterals, you just keep moving the pin one plate lighter each set.

Another way of accelerating shoulders muscles development is by supersetting presses and raises - for example, a barbell press followed by front dumbbell raises (or upright rows) in order to completely blitz the front delts. For a really intense delt workout, try doing a 3-pump set: presses, front dumbbell raises, and upright rows. But be prepared to bear the pain.

To get the best results from raises, remember the following points:

1. Keep your palm turned downward throughout the movement; or, even better, turn the hand a little farther so that the little finger is higher than the thumb (like pouring water out of a pitcher). This helps isolate the deltoids and make them fully contract during the movement.

2. Be as strict as possible. Raise the weight without any cheating, and lower it fully under control. The stricter you are, the more intense the effect on the shoulders muscles.

Another way of increasing the intensity of your shoulder workout is, after each set of dumbbell raises, go over to the rack, take a heavier set of weights, and just lift them out to the side as far as possible and hold them there as long as you can. This "isometric lateral" will help fully exhaust the shoulders muscles and bring out maximum striations.
