Today's Workout 90: The 4-move combo to grow boulder shoulders

Sculpt your delts, traps, and pecs with this shoulder-blasting circuit.

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

Quit neglecting your shoulders and give them the muscle burn they've been wanting with this four-move circuit to stimulate growth.

Take as little rest as possible (or none at all, if you're a serious gym rat) in between rounds of dumbbell overhead presses, band side raises, pull aparts, and reverse lunges to stack muscle onto all three of your deltoid sections—plus your traps and core.


You'll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you'll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you've finished all exercises, rest for 30 to 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

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