Hey, guys! I have a complete shoulder workout for you today. We are training all three deltoid muscles, which make up your shoulder. This will allow you to get those full, round boulder shoulders. We are doing 3 supersets 3 times and that’s it. I’ll also link my video below so that you can workout with me! Don’t forget to comment below if you give it a try and subscribe.

Extend your arms over your head and rotate the palms of your hands until they are facing forward.

 Lower the weights back down to the starting position. Make sure you keep that back straight and engage your core the entire time.

Upright Row

Grab a barbell or two dumbbells and rest the weight on the top of your thighs. Make sure your hands are in a close grip position. (If you have had shoulder injuries avoid close grip hand positioning) This is the starting position.

Focus on using those shoulders to pull the weight up just underneath your chin and drive the motion with your elbows.

Slowly lower the weight back to the starting position and repeat this for 10 reps.
