Time Crunch Training: 15-Minutes to Wider Shoulders

Your go-to shoulder routine when running low on time.
Nate Millado; Produced by Mike Simone

Last week, in our Time Crunch workout series we provided you with a 10-minute back workout. This week our workout focuses on your shoulders.

The workout is another 4-exercise giant set, combining different loading patterns and movement speeds. If you’re unfamiliar with the clean high pull, you can replace it with a Barbell Upright Row to the chest. As you fatigue in the later rounds, during the overhead press, avoid leaning backward and over arching your back. Try placing one foot in front of the other, to help you stay upright.

See how many rounds you can bang out in 15-minutes.




1. High Pull or Upright Row (Heavy and Explosive)

5 reps (zero rest)

2. Barbell Overhead Press

6-8 reps (zero rest)

3. Low Cable Rope High Pull to Chest

10-12 reps (zero rest)

4. Lateral Dumbbell Raise

12-15 reps (60-seconds rest)
