The exercises

Barbell Standing Press

this shoulder-building staple also works your whole body. “It’s a great overall mass builder,” says White. “These are really good for strengthening your core and increasing overall strength due to the stability aspect of this movement.” Start with your hardest move to ensure you’ve got the core strength to maintain perfect form

Seated Dumbbell Press

re-rack your barbell and grab a pair of dumbbells. They’re all you’ll need for the rest of the workout. Then grab a bench; sitting down helps isolate the shoulder motion. “These are really good for not only handling a lot of weight, but also having the freedom of using dumbbells” White tells us. “You can bring them nice and low to get a really full range of motion.” Take a load off your feet and put a load on your shoulders

 this lateral raise variant will hit you where it hurts, working both shoulders and back. White loves them. “It’s one of the best exercises for targeting the posterior deltoid. For more focus on the movement and less on stabilising things, try placing a bench at 45 degrees and perform this movement lying face down on it.” Atlas-level shoulders are on the way

Upright row

“Another great mass builder,” says White. “Get your elbows higher than your hands for a peak contraction of the deltoid. The upright row also targets the traps.” Compound moves like this benefit from heavier fare than the raises, allowing for less reps and bigger weights to keep your shoulders in shock

Front raises

 White recommends front raises to those that have gone through the routine and feel short-changed in the front. “It’s unlikely that your anterior delts need extra work, so spend more time on your medial and posterior deltoids. However, if you feel you want to hit your front deltoids harder, then a front raise is the one for you.” Again, low weight and high reps help you maintain form for shirt-busting gains
