How to grow your shoulders

The key to bigger Shoulders

Having Wide shoulders is every gym bro’s goal! They make your physique POP alot more because they make you wider! The thing is.. Most people do not train them as efficiently as possible. There are many factors that stimulate Shoulder growth! The Delts are made up of 3 muscle heads (front, side and back) They all need to be trained for the three dimensional look. There is always room to improve your training and really take your bicep game to that next level.


How to train them?


Shoulder training can be done anywhere from 2 all the way to 4 times per week, though, it is most important to have rest days in between these days for recovery reasons. The front delt is the strongest of all the heads. You target this head via movements like Shoulder press, overhead press, and front raises.The side delts respond great to high volume lateral raising exercises! While the rear delts need a lot of volume aswell!  

 

How to perform the movements


Using a range of different grip widths will help target the muscle from different angles. You should also hit the shoulders with a variety of strategies! They are a very hard muscle for most lifters to grow! So don't be afraid to train to failure! 

Growth strategy 


When training your Shoulders you have to think of them just like any other muscle, Progressive overload is the way to grow. Week after week it's important to challenge the muscle via more weight on the bar, more reps and or more sets.

Something else to keep in mind is your exercise selection. Our muscles only have a certain capacity for effective training, we need the right movements for maximum gains. 


The best way to combine all of these methods is to follow or create a program for yourself to abide by. This way you are able to keep yourself accountable and on track towards your goals.
