Your average shoulder routine would most likely start with some type of overhead movement, most likely it’ll be a classic like the military press or push press. You’d then progress away from the complex moves into isolation exercises like lateral raises.
But you’re not just looking for average shoulders, are you? Absolutely not. You’re looking to build scultped, boulder-sized delts and pecs. That’s why we’re mixing things up and going in a slightly different direction.
With this unconventional routine, you’ll hit muscle fibers that you probably haven’t hit before. The exercises are different, the sequencing isn’t what you’re used to, but the results are just as solid—and most definitely a step above average. So break away from your typical workout and give this routine from Men’s Fitness Executive Digital and Training Director, Mike Simone, a go.
