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

– PITIFUL PRESSING 

Although presses overhead most strongly activate the anterior (front) deltoid head, they are still the best exercises for manifesting overall muscle mass in the shoulders. I don’t know too many “delt-monsters” out there who do not include at least one form of pressing in every shoulder workout.

-LIMITING EQUIPMENT 

I think that one of the reasons most top bodybuilders today show much more impressive shoulder development than from eras past is because of the incredible variety of new equipment we are so lucky to have at our disposal

-LACK OF INTENSITY 

Developing a truly exceptional pair of cannonball delts is no easy task. I think we often see far more impressive chests and arms than shoulders out there in the land of iron. In fact, up until a few years back I myself realized my delts were not nearly as developed in relation to my pecs, and this was making my overall “aesthetics” suffer.
