The shoulders are a weak spot for many people: here is a complete routine focused on abduction movements, for working on the sides of the deltoid.

This workout is very important to me, as it focuses on one of my weaknesses.

In my opinion, this is a fairly comprehensive routine, with most of the exercises implemented using abduction techniques (lateral raises).

If you, like me, want to work on the lateral deltoids, lateral raises are the only legitimate method.

On to the description of the routine

1 - Standing lateral raises with dumbbells

  • 3 x 10/12
  • 3 x (10 + 10) stripping

Standing lateral raises with dumbbells

2 - Dumbell push presses with rotation

  • 5 x 10/12

The final rotation allows for the involvement of the posterior deltoid

3 - Sitting lateral raises with dumbbells

  • 4 x 12 + Max with knees bent, arms outstretched

4 - Standing same weight front barbell shoulder press

  • 3 x 12 + 20 with knees bent and 30% less weight

Elbows tight and firm, restart with each rep

5 - Lateral raises with weight discs, one arm at a time

  • 3 x 12 no recovery
