You want to build big shoulders and you only have access to a few pairs of dumbbells. What do you do? I’m going to show you what to do whether you’re training for strength, power or hypertrophy. I’ll give you options if you’re looking for a corrective exercise or a total body exercise. I’ll also show you one that’s meant for metabolic training as an additional form of creating hypertrophy. Plus, I didn’t leave out the best dumbbell exercise for hitting the rear delts!
Lighter weights are the real key to getting bigger delts much faster, and ultimately to being able to lift more on your heavy compound lifts. Of course, heavy training should remain a part of your shoulder training routine, but if you’re excluding the use of light weights in your shoulder workouts, this is likely holding back the size of your delts! So get ready for the hardest "light" set you've ever done!
A fully developed set of shoulders can do a lot to enhance the appearance of your upper body. Wider shoulders are what create a larger more balanced look, so this is not a muscle group you want to neglect! To fix this common workout oversight, I’m going to show you my 12 best shoulder exercises!
