For big, broad shoulders, compound moves do the trick. But for muscle striation and dimension, putting different equipment and lesser-targeted muscles to use can deliver exactly what you're looking for.
Transform your upper body with this specialized routine.
How it works
Your typical program consists of a big, compound exercise or exercises followed by isolation exercise, or exercises. For this particular approach, you're going to chill out on the big lifts and double-down on the smaller ones. Isolation exercises are a great way to hyper-focus and zero in on one particular muscle, as well as tap into smaller, more discreet muscle fibers.
How to add this workout to your routine
For 2-3 weeks, couple up a large muscle group (legs, back, chest) with a smaller muscle group (shoulders, arms, abs) or a push and a pull. Shoot for 1 day of rest between workouts. Cycle back onto your regular programming after the 2-3 weeks are up. Rest 30 seconds or less between sets.
