The shoulders are one of the worst places for unwanted fats to hide in. They will make you hide in sweatshirts and longsleeves, which can be really annoying especially when it’s summer!
But did you know that working them out offers benefits beyond making you look way too sexy in sleeveless shirts or beach clothing? It actually makes your daily activities way faster because you’ll be able to lift or push things easier. Totally hassle-free!
For more information, let’s start with these shoulder training mistakes to avoid, as listed by strength coach Eric Broser on Muscle and Fitness:
5 WORST THINGS TO DO TO BUILD BIGGER SHOULDERS
If there is one muscle group that can truly set you apart from the rest of the pack it is the shoulders. Why do I say that? Well, because the delts live in three-dimensions, with heads in the front, sides and back. Onlookers can see just how developed your shoulders are no matter where around you they are standing. In addition, big, thick, and wide delts are not only noticeable when in a tank top or topless, but also when wearing a dress shirt, sweater and even a suit.

Overhead pressing is indeed the best for your shoulders. It actually provides a total body workout, as well as boosts your strength and upper body mass.

Always be careful, and put your safety above everything!

Since you’re already aware of these shoulder training mistakes, it will be easy for you to avoid them. Don’t get it wrong, it’s totally normal to commit mistakes, especially when you just started going to the gym! This is exactly why it’s better to go for full body workouts when you’re a beginner to strengthen the other parts of your body as well.
Most especially, it’s important to keep your workouts consistent. You can’t expect your shoulders to grow or get toned if you barely work them out. Avoid getting stuck in doing the same moves over and over, too. This will only keep you from progress!
