The majority of men desire V-shape physique and to achieve such shape it is important to focus on the fitness of your shoulder. The correct high-intensity shoulder training is required to ensure great development. Shoulders are one of the most reluctant body parts to grow. The reason for this is that these muscles are primarily for endurance rather than power. The shoulders are used to working hard throughout the entire day and to control all arm movements. That’s why shoulders required a lot of intensity in order to grow.
Here are few exercises to shape and form shoulder:
1) Dumbbell shoulder press
This exercise is a basic shoulder mass builder that allows you to target any existing muscle imbalances between your left and right side of the body. To practice this exercise, press the weight up and push your head forward at the top. Back the weight to the starting position with a controlled movement. Perform 5 sets of 8-12 reps with 90 seconds rest in between.
2) The Arnold Press
This exercise hits all 3 sections of the deltoid and the round-looking muscle that caps the top of your upper arm. To practice this exercise, grip a set of dumbbells and bring them to shoulder height with arms bent and palms facing the body. Following this, press them overhead, rotating the dumbbells until the palms are facing forward at the top of the press. Pause, and then slowly lower the weight, reversing the rotating so that the palms end facing the body at the bottom of the press.
3) Upright Barbell Row
Grip a barbell with an overhand grip that is slightly less than shoulder width. The bar should be resting on the top of your thighs with your arms extended and a slight bend in your elbows.This will be your starting position. Following this lift the bar, raising your elbows up and to the side. Keep the bar close to your body as you raise it. Continue to lift the bar until it nearly touches your chin. Lower the bar back down slowly to the starting position. Perform 5 sets of 8-12 reps with 90 seconds of rest in between for better result.
4) The Lateral Raise
The lateral raise will help you to improve your delts and build wider shoulders. To practice this exercise, stand or sit with the dumbbell in each hand at your side. Keep your back straight, brace your core, and then slowly lift the weights out to the side until your arms are parallel with the floor, with the elbow slightly bent. Following this, lower them back, again in measured fashion – you’ll find it all the harder if you avoid speeding up. Perform 10-12 reps for the better result.
5) Barbell Or Dumbbell Shrugs
The barbell shrug effectively targets the upper trapezius. To practice this exercise, grip a set of dumbbells, stand tall, and allow your arms to hang by your sides with your palms facing each other. Following this, keeping your core tight, raise your shoulders toward your ears as high as possible. Pause, and then lower the weight back to the starting position.
