Shoulder Routine

My last post focused on my chest workout. My ultimate goal is to be able to hit 225 lbs on bench press by the end of September. I am trending that way and think I might be able to hit that goal, so I workout chest twice a week. On Wednesday, my focus is arms and shoulders. Here is my Shoulder workout:

 Front Cable Raise: This exercise is what I like to start with. It doesn't take a lot of weight for me to start to feel it either. That is one thing I have noticed about cable work, it does not take a lot of weight to get a good workout. Only up to about 20 lbs on this exercise. 

Arnold Dumbbell Press:  This one is new to me, and I had to be very careful picking the weight I used. If you go too heavy, it can hurt. This exercise is supposed to give you those "boulder shoulders" we all want. 30 lbs is my max on this exercise.

Face Pull: I like this one a lot, it feels like it also gives you a back workout as well. I am usually at around 50 lbs for this one.

Front and Lateral Raise: These jokers can hurt pretty easy. Seems like they both go fairly easy until I get to around 7, then I struggle. I am usually only using around 15-20 lbs.

Shrugs:  I really like this one because I want those shoulder lumps. I like to do this in between sets of other exercises. I usually a 45 lb plate in each hand.

Shoulder Press: I use a machine for this exercise. You can use dumbbells or a bar but I am not there yet, so I like the machine. I am up to 60 lbs on this one.

Rear Deltoid: This is another great machine that I like. It is mostly for  the back, but I feel like it really does work my arms, shoulders and back.

I do like this workout and would love to incorporate it more into my workout, but I have a life, and things are good.  Remember this workout comes to you from the Strong APP you can download!
