How To Build Your Shoulder

If you want to build your shoulder muscles, then you have got to learn how to do so effectively and to protect them when training. Build your shoulder muscles with these effective workouts.

Your deltoids or shoulder muscles are split into 3: frontal (front), medial (middle) and rear (back) so it’s important to have a routine that trains these evenly for full development. This way, you will not only get to look wide from the front but also have some depth and thickness from the side view as well.


This will involve doing a mixture of both compound and isolation exercises. Compound moves are like barbell and dumbbell overhead press (seated is best for back support). Isolation moves are the shapers that finish and add separation and detail. These can be dumbbell lateral raises and bent over dumbbell lateral raises.

There is nothing wrong in adding some variety to your routine by including cables and machines. Sometimes these are actually easier to do as you can control the negative part of the exercise on this equipment.

The best time to train shoulders is part of a Chest-Shoulders-Triceps routine every 4 – 5 days as this will prevent overtraining and speed up your shoulder muscle growth. Especially as when you train chest first you are working your front deltoids indirectly anyway, plus chest exercises warm up your shoulders for their session. This is a great way in the long term to prevent injury and wear and tear on your shoulder joints.


Never ever sacrifice strict form for extra weight with this how to build more significant shoulder muscles program. You should focus on doing exercises correctly and get a fantastic burn with your lateral/bent over laterals by coming slowly down on the negative part of the movement. How many times do you see guys in the gym using far too much weight and swinging it up with their body, a complete waste of time?

But aside from performing all the shoulder muscles training exercises mentioned above, ensure that you are careful with your diet because you should always eat healthily.
