Best Your Guide to Killer Shoulder Workouts

Because the shoulders can be pretty stubborn and can take some serious dedication to change them, a lot of people make the mistake of neglecting them. Many people get too focused on arm and chest development exercises, rather than researching shoulder workouts to get big shoulders.

Have you ever heard someone refer to their deltoids or delts?

Your shoulders are made up of three major muscles – and these muscles are called deltoids. There’s the:

    anterior deltoid
    the medial deltoid
    and the posterior deltoid.

So you don’t want to just work out one of these muscles, you want to work them all out. If you don’t shape your deltoid exercise around all three, it is going to be pretty obvious.

So how do we work each set of shoulder muscles effectively?

Generally, for most people, it is the posterior deltoids and medial deltoids that require the most attention. These types of people usually have good chest muscles due to chest exercises. And this is good news because the anterior deltoids get trained (to a point) during these chest exercises. So you’re working the anterior deltoids during this time – however, posterior and medial deltoids don’t get worked at all.

Also in the shoulders we have the traps (trapezius) which is also involed with the back so you could train the traps on back day.

Before any exercise or workout do not forgot to warm up so you can prevent injury, as it is better to warm up for 5 minutes before the workout as it is to have 5 weeks or so off the gym due to inury.
