Today's Workout 13: The 4-move circuit for massive shoulders

Pump up your delts and traps with this intense routine.

Today's Workout 2: The total-body burner
Duration 30-45
Exercises 4
Equipment Yes

When the weather (finally) warms up and tank-top season arrives, you don't want to be the only guy at the beach (or the gym) with scrawny shoulders.

Lucky for you, all you'll need to beef them up is this circuit of shoulder-building exercises, which specifically target your delts and traps. Once you power through the first few sets of dumbbell punches, front raises, and reverse flyes—which hit that ever-elusive rear deltoid—you'll finish off your triceps with a closing set of close-grip pushups for a little extra sculpting power before you go back for another round.

Your summer body can thank us later.

Directions

You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll do each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've completed all exercises, rest for 30 seconds. Repeat the whole circuit for 5-10 rounds.

Depending on your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
