1 Great Shoulder Workout To Fix Your Lagging Delts
Train your weakest body parts twice per week and you might just make them that tiny bit bigger!
My delts have always been a lagging body part and after consistently hitting them 2X per week they are starting to develop, even though I'm on a cutting diet... I try to hit them from every single angle possible and pause at the top of most isolation movements, such as side raises, for a good 2-3 seconds to really engage my delts and feel that deep burn.
I believe delts in particular respond to really controlled movements, with 0 swinging and great contractions.
Let's say that your delts are a lagging body part and to be more specific your front delts, which are actually my weakest part...
"If you're looking to improve your shoulders I would suggest training them twice a week, once every 3-4 days"
Your first workout might be a heavier workout in the rep ranges of 8-10 and your second day might be a lighter, higher rep day, focusing on a deeper burn and better pump in the rep ranges of 10-12.
