Building your shoulders (or really, any body part) takes patience, consistency, and hard work. Your workouts may be on point, but are you incorporating the right exercises?

Read on for our 4 faves when it comes to building up those boulders!

  1. Arnold press

Used to create a bit more strength and power in the shoulders. You can perform this seated or standing, however seated will allow you to focus on heavier weight, with little room for cheating, by taking your lower body out of the equation.

  1. Lateral raise

Target your side delts intensely with this classic shoulder move. Remember to go lighter than normal with these, and handle the movement with total control as you move away from the body.

  1. Rear delt fly

Give your often-neglected rear delts some love with this exercise and leave them feeling stronger than ever. Having a fully developed rear delt rounds out the look of the shoulders and their shape all the way around your upper body.

  1. Front raise

Target your front delts and do these ones seated. This allows you to keep total control by isolating and not swinging the weight whatsoever.


As with any new exercise – start lighter than you think to gauge your proper weight, always use control, and never work through pain!
