Your shoulder muscles are your deltoids. There are three of them: middle, posterior (back) and anterior (front).
Strong shoulder muscles help with any effort in which you push weight overhead, or to the side or front of the body.
Well-defined and bulky deltoids also help create that triangular shape that bodybuilders seek.
Here are my top targeted exercises for the shoulders..
1: Seated or standing press – dumbbell, barbell
2: Lateral raise
3: Front raise
4: Upright row
For the raises, you can use both dumbbells and cables. Upright rows can be done with barbells and dumbbells.
