Shoulder Workout- The 3 Best Shoulder Exercises

In this shoulder exercise video, I will introduce you to the 3 most important mass building exercises to work your shoulder muscles.


In order to build big shoulders, you need to be including these 3 exercises in your program or a combination using at least one.

Standing Military Barbell Press: Setup a barbell on a squat rack (if available) on a set of pins that is at the height of the start of the exercise. use a shoulder width grip.

Pick a weight that will allow you to fail between 8-10 reps using good form.

Seated Dumbell Shoulder Press: Setup a bench with a back support and grab some dumbbells.

Lift off from your knees and use a spotter if necessary.

Pick a weight that will allow you to fail between 8-10 reps.

Upright Barbell Row:

Setup a barbell with a weight you can handle for about 8-10 reps.

Then using a grip that is a bit narrower than shoulder width, grab the bar with an overhand position, and lift up towards the ceiling, keeping your elbows high. 

Don’t go too heavy on this one because doing so can result in injury and or takes the tension of the target muscle.

Include any or all of these exercises in your shoulder workout to start seeing a bigger fuller set of delts.
