Shoulder Workout- Shoulder Rest-Pause Training

In this shoulder exercise video, I am going to show you how to incorporate rest-pause training to work your shoulder muscles.

In order to build big shoulders, you need to be including a combination of the right exercises as well as different training styles

This video demonstrates how to utilize rest-pause training using the Barbell Military Press.


Basically, get setup with a barbell that is set at about shoulder height on a power rack.

Pick a weight that will have you failing anywhere from 6-8 reps.

This training style will have you fail with a bit of a heavier weight which will be great for stimulating type 2 muscle fibers that have the most growth potential.

This is how the rest-pause method will work:

Do your first set with a weight that will allow for no more than 8 reps.

Then once you can’t do anymore, put rack the weight and rest for about 20-30 seconds.

Do another set with the same weight for as many reps as possible.

Then once you can’t do anymore, put rack the weight and rest for about 20-30 seconds.

Then, do your final set going for as many reps as  possible.

There is a total of 3 mini-set within this one rest-pause method.

I would include this method only once in your workout or upper chest exercise.

This is a perfect method to bust through a plateau and gains size and strength.

Include this exercise method in your next chest workout to start seeing a bigger fuller set of shoulders.
