Trying to get broader shoulders? Then try this quick and efficient way to bulk up your upper body.

This workout is designed around "giant sets," which are designed to hit your shoulder muscles from different angles and achieve hypertrophy—that translates to huge muscle size gains, and fast.

This workout isn't for slackers, though—you'll do four exercises without rest periods in-between to maximize results.


The workout is a four-exercise giant set, which combines different loading patterns and movement speeds. If you’re not comfortable with the clean high pull, you can replace it with a barbell upright row to the chest instead. As you start to fatigue in the later rounds, during the overhead press, make sure to avoid leaning backward and overarching your back. Try placing one foot in front of the other, which will help you stay upright, and cue yourself to tighten your abs and keep your ribs tight.

See how many rounds you can bang out in the 15-minute session.
