The 5 Best Exercises For Defined Shoulders
1.Dumbbell Shoulder Press – 3 x 15
For shoulder presses, make sure to keep your core tight and arms out like a touchdown sign.
Press your arms up and end once you hit the top with both arms straight.
Then, slowly bring your arms back down to the starting position.
2. Arnold Press – 3 x 12
The Arnold press is an effective shoulder exercise, but challenging.
Start by holding the dumbbells in front of your body, with your wrists facing you.
Begin to twist your arms away from you body as you lift them up.
End with your arms above your head with your wrists now facing away from you.
To really challenge yourself combine this exercise with the dumbbell shoulder press. Arnold press up, shoulder press out to the side, and then Arnold press back down to the starting position.
3. Upright Row – 3 x 12
Upright rows are an awesome exercise to round out your delts.
First, start with your arms straight down in front of you with your wrists facing your body.
Then pull straight up, first from your shoulders, then through your elbows until the dumbbells are in line with your armpits.
4. Lateral Raises – 3 x 15
To complete a lateral raise you begin with your arms down in front of you.
Next, lift both arms out horizontally focusing on pulling up from your shoulders.
Once you reach a point where both arms are almost straight with your wrists facing the ground, bring your hands back down to start position.
5. Front Raise – 3 x 15
For front raises you will begin with your arms down in front of you.
Next, pull the dumbbells straight up in front of you.
Once you reach the top position, bring your hands back down to the starting position.
As a challenge you can combine lateral raises with front raises, switching off between the two.
