To demonstrate this workout, Mike Chang will be explaining all the important areas that you must understand to have the most desirable results.

So the key thing with working on shoulders is if you want really good delts, something that pops out really nice, gives you that nice V shape, you want to make sure that you’re hitting it from all three angles.

3rd Angle – Back Shoulder Muscle

The 5 workouts you’re about to see will target these three angles.

To start, Mike will be using a 20-pound dumbbell. You should start off with a weight that you can do at least 12 reps with.

If you’re able to do three rounds of 10 reps on each of these exercises but on the fourth round, you can’t get those 10 reps, you only get 8, 6, 7. No big deal. Don’t decrease the weight.
