Today I am enjoying a wave of endorphins stirred up by the following shoulder workout routine: 1. Standing Military presses, barbell: 10x10. 2. Standing lateral raises, dumbbells: 5x14 + 5x10 (dropsets). 3. Trapezius rows, barbell: 4x5.
This kind of routine calls for light weights. With the military presses you really can’t aim for anything heavier than 60% of your 1RM, if you are to keep your rest intervals in between sets below 90 seconds. The burn that comes from this kind of shoulder session is rather intense – but so is the pump and the feeling of accomplishment afterwards.
