Favourite shoulder workout?
i have an all out shoulder workout once a week but no matter what i do i can't get them to feel ANY soreness whatsoever.

standing shoulder press (dumbell) - 4x12
side lateral raises (dumbell) 5x10

dont know the exact name of this one
bent over reverse flys (dumbell) 3x10

front lateral raises (dumbell) 4x8
sitting shoulder press (barbell) 3x6

any tips/advice? thank you

I like standing dumbell raises, using one arm.

I have that problem to. So sometimes ill just blast um just do more then usual. Or if i dont wake up feelin it again. Ill just hit um again not as hard but if you flex and u feel something. I suppose you did something?

Why do they have to be sore? My shoulders are rarely sore as well. It doesn't really worry me. Are you making strength gains? Size gains? Endurance increases?

You should judge your workout on solid goals and landmarks (objective) not on something subjective like "soreness."

^^^ Ditto!

Agreed with IW,extreme soreness in a muscle usually (but not always) shows a lack of conditioning which is usually the case with bodybuilding type splits.


Something that made my shoulders grow well in size was military push presses for about 20 reps rest paused followed with 2 sets of 15 side laterals.

I like arnold press and military press its really works for me and yes the one you are saying bend over reverse fly its for back side of the shoulder thats good one too.

I keep it simple with heavy military press's, dumbell shoulder press's and lateral + front raises.

i dont like upright row as it puts your rotator cuff at a high risk of injury.

Have your tried slowing down your reps? Thus stimulating the muscle for a longer period of time? I've found this to be quite useful. You can also try a standing military press/upright row superset, or a side lateral/front lateral raise superset

military press and lat raises, was doing bent over flyes and that maybe the cause of tear in back of shoulder that has put me down for two months
