In this shoulder workout you’re going to get a complete program that will pump up your deltoids for rapid results.

Here’s the full shoulder workout…

Military Press (i.e. Standing Shoulder Press) – 5 sets of 5 reps

Dumbbell Side Lateral Raise – 5 sets of 10-12 reps
(i.e. pyramiding up up and down in weight)

Rear Delt Cable Cross Over Fly – 3 sets of 10-12 reps
(i.e. reverse cable flys)

Barbell Front Raise – 3 sets of 10-12 reps

Face Pull – 3 sets of 10-12 reps

Starting With A Compound Mass Builder!
The Military Press is a great move for building mass and strength in the shoulders. Performing the standing press will work more stabilizer muscles and provide a higher level of neuro-muscular activation compared to the seated shoulder press or machine shoulder press.

Adding Width To The Shoulders!
After the military press we’re going to isolate the medial head of the deltoids (i.e. the side delts) with the dumbbell side lateral raise. For this one start off light and pyramid up in weight with each set, then pyramid your way back down in weight for a mind blowing muscle pump.

Don’t Forget The Rear Delts!
The next exercise is the rear delt cable cross over fly, also known as the reverse cable fly. This exercises will work the rear delts through a full range of motion. Use strict form and really squeeze your rear delts hard for a second at the top of each rep.

Finish Off Those Front Delts!
The front delts don’t need a lot of direct work because when you train chest and triceps your front delts come into play as secondary muscles. So simply adding in a few sets of front raises with your shoulder workout will be plenty to isolate the front head of the shoulders.

Finish Off By Working The Traps & Upper Back!
The final exercise in our mass building shoulder workout is the face pull. This move is a compound exercise that targets the rear delts, traps, and upper back. It will allow you to handle a fair bit of weight and get a really good pump throughout the upper back.

There you go, a complete delt pumping mass building shoulder workout program that will help you fill out that t-shirt with big round cannon ball deltoids.

    Hi Lee, I don’t have a cable cross machine and was wondering if there were any alternatives for the face pull shown in the video?
