The Best Barbell Only Shoulder Workout

Build big, broad shoulders with this two-move shoulder workout.

1. CLEAN AND PRESS

Sets: 4 Reps: 6–8 Rest: 90 sec.

Stand with feet shoulder width. Keeping your lower back arched, bend your hips back to lower your torso and grasp the bar with hands shoulder width. Extend your hips to lift the bar off the floor. When it gets past your knees, jump and shrug the bar so that momentum raises it and you catch it at shoulder level. Brace your abs and stand tall. Press the bar straight overhead.

2. SNATCH-GRIP HIGH PULL

Sets: 4 Reps: 6 Rest: 90 sec.

Set up as you did for the clean and press, but grasp the bar with hands double shoulder width. Explode the bar upward until it’s at chest level and your upper arms are parallel to the floor. Try to push your chest out as you lift the bar and contract your upper back completely.
