Seven movements, not counting the variations of each one, that will give you excellent results.
No ideas for shoulder exercises?
Or simply looking to make the training plan more complete for more developed shoulders?
Whatever the reason, you will find here several exercises that work different areas of the shoulders and will give you excellent results.
Given the current situation, we chose to include only free weight exercises, that is, barbells or dumbbells.
Shoulder press with dumbbells
A classic of the exercises to work the shoulders.
You will need at least dumbbells and discs, as this exercise can be adapted, being possible to be done standing, without a bench.
It is one of best exercises to work the shoulder, being surpassed only probably by the next, so put it at the beginning.
Probably the best exercise to work your shoulders, and at the same time, it involves other muscle groups for a very complete exercise.
On the other hand, if you have only just started training or have no one who can observe your technique, sitting press is possibly a superior choice, as the risk of injury in this poorly made movement is high.
The exercise of choice when you want to train the side of the shoulders.
It is a good exercise but often done poorly.
You must control the weight of the movement on the descent and not simply drop it. If that happens, and you can't control it, reduce the card.
An exercise named after the famous Arnold.
An exercise to work the back of the shoulders and you must be careful not to go too far behind with the weight.
The ideal is to stay with the arms on the shoulder line in order to maximize the work of the back of the shoulders.
The name says it all.
It is basically an exercise that works above all the front of the shoulders.
The same thing as the above exercise for the posterior zone.
This, on the other hand, further isolates the area to be worked on and reduces the likelihood of injury.
We tried to present a good variety and, at the same time, that variety allowed you to choose some exercises and work your shoulders completely.
The trapezoids could be included, and end up being worked on in many exercises on the list, but we chose not to put any dedicated ones and leave the trapezoids for another article.
Ultimately, this is not a workout. Do not make these movements all on the same day.
