This workout is designed to help you get large, defined shoulders. Many people don’t realize that the key to having big looking arms is to actually workout your shoulders and triceps, not necessarily focusing on your biceps. This workout is designed to give you big shoulders with a nice, cut like, seperation between your shoulders, biceps, and triceps.
Shoulders, like our legs and core, are some of the strongest, most used muscles in our body. Almost every movement or exercise you do from simply lifting your arm up or getting out of bed in the morning and brushing your teeth requires the use of your shoulders. Almost all of your exercises including chest, triceps, back, biceps, etc all use your shoulders.
Because of the constant use coupled with the fragile ball joint that is connected to your shoulders it’s important that you’re doing the correct exercises and not over fatiguing your shoulder muscles. If you’re starting out opt for lower weight, higher rep workouts rather than higher weight lower rep workouts. As your get comfortable with the movements feel free to increase your weight.
This workout will maximize your pump and allow you to hit multiple angles on your shoulders to give you the best definition. Higher weights will give you this larger pump, but as we mentioned before start out with lower weights and gradually work your way up as you feel more comfortable.
