GET STANDOUT SHOULDERS WITH EXERCISES FROM IFBB PROS

Cydney Gillon and Carly Horrell share their go-to shoulder exercises for capping off a sexy upper body.

“When I go through my shoulder training I make sure I focus on each delt (anterior, lateral, and posterior), treating all three as separate workouts. This helps me create complete symmetry all the way around. The goal is to have beautifully capped shoulders to help achieve an hourglass physique.”

“I love this workout because of the amount of blood flow it creates. You’re really able to see the muscles working while tying in some cardio. Depending on how much weight you use, it’s also very effective for conditioning or gaining more lean muscle.” On supersets, don’t rest for more than 1 minute between sets.
