Advanced Shoulder Muscle Workout Routine to Build Muscle Fast
This is an advanced shoulder muscle workout routine designed to target all areas of the shoulder, helping you to build muscle fast and get a "well-rounded" set of shoulders.
You should do 3 sets of 8 to 12 reps for each exercise in this should muscle workout routine. The tempo for the each rep is 2-1-2. What this means is you should take a two count to lift the weight, hold the lift for a one count to squeeze the muscle hard, and a two count to lower the weight.
The lateral dumbbell raises and the upright rows target the lateral (side) deltoid muscle, while the rear lateral raises hit the back part (posterior) part of the shoulder. You may notice that we did not include an exercise for the front of the shoulders. Both the lateral raises and the upright rows also involve the anterior deltoids.
Additionally, the front part of the shoulders gets a significant amount of work during your chest workout. However, if you would like to additional work for the anterior delts, then you may incorporate front lateral raises or seated dumbbell presses to the beginning of this workout, using the same set, rep and tempo scheme as the other exercises.
The shrugs (barbell and dumbbell) are in the advanced shoulder muscle workout routine to really hit your traps to help build muscle mass in the shoulder and upper back area.
