Exercises: Shoulders


The exercises in the video are:

  • Side Lateral Raises
  • Rear Lateral Raises
  • Dumbell Shoulder Press
  • Rear Delt Machine
  • Machine Shoulder Press

Some Key Points:

  • Heaviest weight you can handle with good form, for full range of motion
  • Choose a weight that you can perform for 30-50 seconds depending on your desired goal
  • Keep continuous tension on the muscles throughout the movement
  • Do not lock out or pause at the top or bottom of the movement
  • Make sure you keep your thumbs down (like pouring water out of a pitcher) when you perform lateral raises
  • Bring weight above parallel to side of shoulder for lateral raises
  • Bring weight down slowly, and controlled for all shoulder exercises.
