Shoulders Boulders

Fitness ∙ Tags: ∙ Posted on: October 1, 2014

Working shoulders is one of my favorites! I think I really enjoy it because I always add in a little bit of power exercises that work the traps, shoulders, and legs altogether. For me, beginning with power exercises like the power clean and push press really helps me feel warmed up and athletic overall.

For this workout, the warm-up can be anything, really, (below, I gave an example) as long as you get a little sweat and adrenaline going–especially since power cleans involve explosive energy and readiness. Also, depending on how much time you have at the gym, if you need to implement more cardio in the week, then this day is a good day to add a low intensity 15-20 minute cardio at the end of the workout!

Warm-up: 10 min Mix of Run, Lunge, Side Shuffles (I normally do on treadmill)


  • 4×6 BB Power Clean
  • 4×8 BB Push Press
  • 4×12 Seated DB Shoulder Press
  • 4×12 Plate Front Raise
  • Monster Set:
    • 3×12 DB Lateral Raise
    • 3×12 DB Front Raise
    • 3×12 DB Bent Over Rear Delt Flyes
