Cable Front Raise 3 12
One Arm Cable Lateral Raise 3 12
Dumbbell Reverse Fly 3 12
Traps superset: Upright row with heavy weight for 8 reps, then straight into barbell shrug with the same weight. Very important that you hold the top position for a count of 4 and lower slowly. This gives you a rep timing of 1-4-2. The weight should be light to shrug, so do as many reps as possible.
Shoulder exercises: Strict for and slow rep timing on all exercises.
Week 3 – Shoulders Shock Week
Shoulders
Exercise Sets Reps
Dumbbell Press/Barbell Front Raise superset 4 8/12
Dumbbell Lateral Raise Drop Set 4 Max
Dumbbell Reverse Fly Drop Set 4 Max
Traps
Exercise Sets Reps
Barbell Shrug 3 12
Cable Upright Row 3 10
Notes
Superset: Heavy presses for 8 reps (you should only just be able to push out the last rep) then straight into barbell front raise for 12 slow reps. Rep timing for barbell front raises is 2-2-2. This should burn!
Drop sets: Start off with a weight you can do for 8-10 reps and drop down doing maximum reps on each weight you drop to. Aim for minimum 3 drops.
