Muscle detailing: The workout to build incredibly chiseled shoulders

Polish up your deltoids with this 4-move detail-oriented routine.

Muscle detailing: The workout to build incredibly chiseled shoulders
Duration 45
Exercises 4
Equipment Yes

For big, broad shoulders, compound moves do the trick. But for muscle striation and dimension, putting different equipment and lesser-targeted muscles to use can deliver exactly what you're looking for. 

Transform your upper body with this specialized routine. 

How it works

Your typical program consists of a big, compound exercise or exercises followed by isolation exercise, or exercises. For this particular approach, you're going to chill out on the big lifts and double-down on the smaller ones. Isolation exercises are a great way to hyper-focus and zero in on one particular muscle, as well as tap into smaller, more discreet muscle fibers. 

How to add this workout to your routine

For 2-3 weeks, couple up a large muscle group (legs, back, chest) with a smaller muscle group (shoulders, arms, abs) or a push and a pull. Shoot for 1 day of rest between workouts. Cycle back onto your regular programming after the 2-3 weeks are up. Rest 30 seconds or less between sets.

Watch the video for detailed instructions on how to do the moves, as demonstrated by Eugene Isaev (@eugeneaesthetics), an LA-based certified personal trainer.
