🔥 WORKOUTS FOR FULLER LOOKING👇 SHOULDERS
✅ It’s been said that “shoulders make the man.” Update that to include “or woman” and you’ve got yourself an idea to get
✅ Shoulders, as opposed to other muscle groups which grow via a few main compound movements and heavy lifting, need a lot of everything. Why? Because different areas of the delt respond better to different types of stimulation.
✅ Rear delts respond best to high reps and a lot of time under tension. But to get thick, dense, and beefy front and middle delts, you’ll have to do some heavy military or behind the neck pressing.
There are two main keys to building shoulders: The first is variety (hitting different angles); the second is time under tension. The actual weight you lift here plays a secondary role when it comes to shoulders.
✅ I’m not saying you have to be shoulder pressing with 5-pound dumbbells, but super-controlled movement with perfect technique will go a long way. Maybe try to combine triple sets or giant sets with different angles, tempos, and exercises.
✅ The shoulders are broken up into 3 separate heads: the anterior head (the front), the lateral head (the middle) and the posterior head (the rear).
While development of the anterior head is certainly important for overall shoulder balance, it actually contributes the least to the appearance of wide, round shoulders since it sits directly in front of your body and does not “pop out” as noticeably like the other two heads do.
🚨 If you really want to build 3D delts and achieve that round “bouldered” look, your primary focus should be on developing the lateral head.
The lateral head is the slab of muscle that hangs directly off the side of your shoulders and contributes the most to that wide, powerful upper body look.
The larger the lateral head is, the rounder your delts will appear.
