TRAINING SHOULDERS ON AN EXTRA DAY
If you’d like to focus more on your shoulders, then have shoulders as your 4th training day. In the program, you receive my shoulder workout with permission from IFBB Pro Mike Ely. It’s the very workout I did as my 4th training day to put on more muscle mass on my shoulders to finish as one of the top ten figure competitors at nationals. Again, only training four days a week to get there.
You don’t always need to train harder, but smarter.
That gave me three days a week I didn’t need to train, and I could be better as a wife, mom, writer, and business owner. Freeing to know you can get results and not be obsessive about it, right?
FAVORITE SHOULDER EXERCISES
My favorite shoulder exercises are ones I learned from IFBB Pro John Meadows. He showed me the Heavy Laterals and the Hang and Swings. You use a much heavier weight, but don’t actually do a full rep. I call it ‘finding the sweet spot.’ They are included in the training program and videos below if you’d like a visual no how to do it!
Find the sweet spot to where you swing the heavier dumbbells while standing for the heavy laterals, or leaning face first over a bench for hang and swings.
Dana Lynn Bailey had another great superset I love and the only time I allow myself to be ‘sloppy’ with an exercise. But you keep a bend in your elbows and lift heavier dumbbells allowing a sloppier technique for side laterals, and then drop to a lower weight for the more perfect form and straight arms.
