Shoulder Workouts and How to Do Them Right

We all want big shoulders. After all, you wouldn’t be on this post if you didn’t. I’m guessing, like me, you looked up shoulder exercises one day, and Google bombarded you with hundreds of shoulder workouts. However, many different exercises don’t implement the timing of the shoulder workouts or the current exercise balance. After all, your shoulders have three different heads, and we must ensure we’re training all three. First, we’ll go over the three heads of the shoulder you’ll need to be training. Then, we’ll review some templates on shoulder workouts and how to do them correctly.

The Three Parts of The Shoulder

Frontal Head

The front head of the shoulder is probably the one you’ve trained or used the most. The front head of the delt is used in many exercises in many different ways. The range of motion mainly involves our hands being in front of us or over our heads. Likewise, here are a couple of exercises that work out the front shoulder to give you an idea about training them:

Lateral Head

The lateral head of the shoulder is primarily trained in a single way. Mainly, we train our lateral head by extending our arms to the side of us with either a dumbell or a cable. Here are a couple of good examples:

Rear Head

The rear head of the delt is pretty self-explanatory. First, the frontal delt goes to the front. Then, the lateral delt goes laterally. So, how do we work out the rear delt? That’s right! Rear shoulder movements involving lots of back workouts and specific isolation such as these:

When to Do Shoulder Workouts

The shoulders are an incredibly important muscle. However, we need to train them according to the rest of our muscles. Otherwise, we’ll get fatigued very quickly. For example,

Frontal Head: Not suitable to work out directly after or before a chest day. Either train them with chest or 48 hours before/after.
Lateral Head: No muscle correlates heavily with the lateral head, so you can train it whenever you like
Rear Head: Mainly has back issues; however, they heal quickly and had to isolate. Train them on a back day if you wish, but 24 hours is more than enough for rear delts.


Full Shoulder Day

Some of us love training shoulders so much, that we need an entire day for it. That’s perfectly fine, and here we’ll give you a template you can follow for your shoulder day. Here’s our fully customized template:

  • Heavy Front Delt: Heavy front delt exercise, such as an Overhead Press
  • Lateral/Front Delt Push/Pull: Do a pushing/pulling movement that uses both your lateral and front delts, such as the Arnold Press
  • Lateral Delt Raise: Lateral raises are a must, and they have their entire field. You can choose different types of lateral raises however, such as a cable lateral raise or a dumbell lateral raise
  • Facepulls: Cable Facepulls, dumbell facepulls, anything that fully isolates our rear delts

Shoulder + Other Muscle

Another method of training our shoulders is matching them with the muscle they work with. Front delt with chest, rear delt with back, and lateral delt whenever. Here’s the list of shoulder workout templates you should add AFTER your other muscle workout:

Front Delt + Chest

  • Overhead Press: Do it after a barbell pench press’ set is fully completed. Seated, standing, barbell, or dumbell is entirely up to you.
  • Front Delt Isolation: Find an exercise that fully isolates your delts

Lateral Delts + Anything

  • Lateral Raise: Dumbell, Cable, Egyptian, doesn’t matter much
  • Lateral/Front Push/Pull OR Lateral/Rear Delt Isolation: If you need more front delt work, push. If you need more rear delt work, go with the latter.

Rear Delts + Back

  • Facepull: Whether it’s a dumbell, cable, or other variation, facepulls are needed for rear delt work.
  • Rear Delt Focused Back Exercises: We’ll describe this more in the exercise section, but this is basically any back exercise involving a row and highly focusing on the rear delts by pushing out arms out more.

Random Placement

This ONLY works for lateral and rear delt, as they recover very quickly. For front delt work, keep it with chest day for this one. However, here’s a template of exercises you can add any day:

  • Lateral Raise: You get the gist
  • Facepulls: Same as aforementioned facepulls, but with a little bit less intensity to help with the repeated motion
  • Lateral/Rear Delt Isolation: Reverse Pec Deck is a great example of using both the rear and lateral delts in isolation. However, there are more exercises:

Exercise List

This exercise list will be separated in each category that was mentioned beforehand, so you can have multiple options for each exercise:

Heavy Front Delt Push

Lateral/Front Delt Push/Pull

Lateral Delt Raise


Front Delt Isolation

Rear Delt Back Focused Exercises

Lateral/Rear Delt Isolation:


This post has everything you need to build the strongest shoulders imaginable. It can take a while to figure this setup out, so be tuned for an upcoming post on how to adjust workout templates, exercises, sets, reps, and rest time, all for yourself. Bye for now, and let’s get some gains!

    I loved even more than you will get done right here. The overall look is nice, and the writing is stylish, but there’s something off about the way you write that makes me think that you should be careful what you say next. I will definitely be back again and again if you protect this hike.
