    This is what a pro told me for shoulder workout

    i saw this one guy with big ass delts and i asked him what he does do get them big.

    this is what he told me his routine is

    Push Press 3 sets
    Dumbell Press 3 sets
    Lateral raise (Thumbs Facing Floor) 3 sets
    Bent Over Rows 3 sets


    What do you guys think? i wouldnt mind giving this a shot but i would like to hear your opinions first. 2 presses better then 1 in a shoulder workout

    Personaly i think delt workouts should consist of more isolation exercises.

    1 pressing movement
    2 or 3 raising movements ( isolation)

    Whatever you do will work if you put in 100% and use good form

    My routine varies but usually includes:

    db press
    military/behind neck press
    lateral raises

    I was told a long time ago that heavy pressing movements are king for big delts and have always followed that advice.

    IMO a balanced delt will look rounder and better than an unbalanced delt even if it is smaller.

    I now switch my first exercise between Standing BB press and side laterals.

    When pressing lower the weight and focus on using your delts as much as possible

    Remember balanced delts look better, dont skimp on rear and side delt work

    ALWAYS

    ive had some success with doing three of those exercises (press, db press, and lateral raise with the thumbs down) super setting the three movements. i do for 5 or 6 sets and it destroys them pretty well.

    you might be confused. not dangerous. it's simply a lateral dumbell raise for the lateral deltoid head.

    when you perform it the arms are rotated so that the elbows are pushed up towards the ceiling. this works the lateral deltoid instead of the front deltoid (which is worked when the raise is performed with the "common" technique)

    milos explains this very thoroughly in the middle of this video.

    This video shows how to pop them up really well, if you can't do that you have no reason lifting the weight IMO. It's the only thing that keeps me from going heavier on db shoulder press.
