The Only 3 Shoulder Exercises You Need To Build Muscle …
Guys, I am excited about this video today. I want to give you my 3 best shoulder exercises that you need to do to build muscle. All you need for these shoulder exercises, is a set of dumbbells. Two of these exercises utilize my TriCon Training, so I am very excited to show you those. Each TriCon set consists of 9 reps. The first 3 reps are explosive, the next 3 are 10 second isometric holds, and the last 3 are super slow reps (4 seconds up, 4 seconds down). Now, let’s get started with the 3 shoulder exercises you need to build muscle using only dumbbells.
Exercise #1: TRICON LATERAL RAISES. You are just going to be raising your arms to your sides, you do not need to raise the dumbbells above shoulder height. The shoulders are not a big muscle group, so you will need to use light weight, especially from the 10 second isometric hold reps. This exercise will help you to get thick and wide looking shoulders.
Exercise #2: SEATED TRICON DUMBBELL OVERHEAD PRESS. I typically recommend using dumbbells over barbells because dumbbells allow you to have more mobility during the exercise. A barbell locks your joints in place, limiting mobility and causing more stress on your shoulder joints. You can do this exercise seated or standing, but I recommend doing this exercise sitting down. Turn the dumbbells slightly inward to allow for a better movement. Make sure to get nice full stretches and good contractions.
Exercise #3: BENT LATERAL RAISES. Hinge at the hips and stick your butt out to help protect your back. Drive your elbows up and out, and hold the contraction at the top of the movement for a couple of seconds. Utilize a slow controlled movement, to really focus on working your rear deltoids. You are just using your hands as hooks in this exercise.
Make sure to implement these exercises into your shoulder workouts. This will help you balance your shoulders and build strength in your shoulders.
