The shoulders are one of those body parts that is often overtrained or undertrained. Let me explain: Because delts play a role in chest pressing movements, it is easy for them be overtrained so they are unable to work shoulders.
Do not get stuck in a rut. You don\’t want to get stuck in this kind of rut. Instead, incorporate the following moves into your shoulder routine.
It is rare to see anyone doing laterals with cables in the gym. Most people stick to dumbbells out of habit. Cables allow you to do more variations than dumbbells, and the constant tension puts more stress on the lower portion of the middle deltoid that connects with the triceps and biceps. In every shoulder routine, do at least one cable move. This could be a lateral lift, front riase or bent-overlateral raise. These three movements can be done either standing or seated with either one or both of your arms.
Another thing that I noticed is that people who do front or lateral raises with dumbbells tend to do the traditional version, which involves stopping at shoulder height. You can try switching things up by lifting the weight higher than usual. On the lateral raise, don\’t stop when your arms reach the floor. Instead, continue to lift the dumbbells until they touch your head. This allows the shoulders to move more freely, hits more muscle fibers and includes the traps. This will limit your weight and prevent you from doing lateral or front raises as well. For those with shoulder problems, it can be challenging to move through this wider range of motion.
My favourite nameake lift is not being promoted here to make it look easy. It\’s a great move for the middle and front deltoids. As in dumbbell curls, hold a dumbbell in each of your hands at shoulder height. Your elbows are near your sides. Rotate your arms and hands to face forward as you press the dumbbells. You can reverse the descent. This is a difficult exercise, but it\’s also very efficient.
