Growing up, I wanted to be big and strong. My weight training reflected that. As I got older, I developed a lot of injuries. I tore my capsules in my shoulder. I developed "weightlifter's shoulder
," among other things. So instead of training harder, I learned to train smarter.
Now, I change the number of repetitions I do. I change my weights. I started training a lot of different angles to target the circular nature of my shoulders. My results improved and I became less injury-prone.
I used what I learned to build the workout below. It includes seven exercises that work together to help develop overall shoulder strength. I recommend doing it once per week. Don't be afraid to change variations of exercises from dumbbells to machines to cables. Keep your body guessing.
