since i am doing a general upper-lower body split, i do not focus too much on the shoulders. but still, they are the one area that doesnt seem to gain any size.
i am currently doing 2 upper and 2 lower body days per week, most followed by 15 minutes of HIIT cardio. I started about 5 weeks ago.
upper body is:
- pull-ups (3 x 10)(with 50 lb support)
- seated row (3x10)(100-120lb)
- lying dumbbell press (3x10)(45-50lb)
- lying dumbbell fly (3x10)(30-35lb)
- standing shoulder press (3x10)(35-45lb)
- front raise (3x10)(15-20lb)
- side raise (3x10)(30lb)
I usually change the workout up for the next upper body workout. for example, I will put in some upright rows and shoulder shrugs and leave out the front and side raise.
I am not trying to become huge[/quote]WOW[quote] but would like to see a bit of growth in my shoulders.
I am trying to keep this routine because it seems to workout good for me (timewise).[/quote]
If you want something to grow work it first. if you stop seeing weekly gains in strength with a excercise then switch it, Barbell press to dumbell press etc. You could also just change the reps.
If your eating right and not growing Your routine dosent work good for you. What are you thinking? You want to make no progress in the gym because it fits in your schedule?!
Also you said you arent focusing on shoulders…
