my shoulders are the smallest/most lagging part of my body, and i just want to get the best workout for them as possible
this is my current shoulder routine (or the one i did today)
3 sets arnold presses 6-8
2 sets upright rows 8
2 sets L-laterals 6-8
2 sets side raises 6-8
i switch up upright rows and arnold presses with military presses and front raises every few weeks
any suggestions or changes? thanks in advance

Hmm, well I take it you do that once a week? What does the rest of your routine look like. When do you bench or do other pushing movements?
You could also add in
2 sets of "eat more"
2 sets of "eat again"
1 set of "force eating"
But in all seriousness, you can have the perfect shoulder routine, but if you're not eating enough, they won't grow. Oh by the way, i wasn't making fun of you, i was simlpy speaking from experience.

shoulders have their own day
Yea but I meant what is the order? Like what comes before shoulders.Originally Posted by retsmit
Like say you do Chest one day and then shoulders the next, well that isn't really the best way to do things because your shoulders get worked from benching. I don't know how you do it though so I dunno.

I see no problem with the shoulder routine you have, though, personally I don't like upright rows. I use shugs and dl's for the traps instead.

i thought upright row emphasizes more of the medial heads and traps act as stabilizers.
I would do military press(BB or DB) instead of Arnies for the simple fact that you can use more weight. That goes without saying, eat more buddy! Goodluck to ya
i sympathize with you. genetically, my shoulders lag awfully bad... ive taken a lot of heat for it! you really have to accept that they probably wont be caught up for a while...
It helps to determine where the problem is.. My anterior delts seemed pretty big, but my medial and anterior delts were hardly there.... so, i did workouts to incorpoate them more
