Shoulders Like Boulders Kelly Rennie Style!
I use a range of exercises when working my shoulders, and after tons of experimenting, I have found this routine works well for me.
I combine the routine compound movements, with some isolation work, but also a little power work towards the end. Its what I enjoy, and whilst critiques might argue that the power work should be a separate training session, bear in mind just how warmed up my joints are when I get to these movements, so as long as I keep the weights sensible, I significantly reduce my risk of injuries and gain tremendously by a mass of muscle fiber recruitment.
Dumbbell shoulder press
4 sets (including a warm up set) ranging from 8 to 12 reps
Dumbbell lateral/front raise
3 sets of 10 reps, with the lateral raise leading immediately into front raises
Cable rear fly
NEVER neglect the posterior deltoids! 3 sets of 10 to 12 and occasionally perform the last set to failure, so might be as much as 15 reps
TRX Y Row
Not strictly a shoulder isolation exercise, but is in keeping with my routine
3 sets of 8 to 10 reps
Push ups off tyre on a decline
3 sets to failure but maintaining form
3 sets of 8 to 12 reps
ENJOY! And don’t forget to do your cool down stretches! :)
